Whakapau kaha – to be better than before.

Just a little about me as a person.


I have been married to Chris (who is my rock) for over 30 years and we have two boys Robert and Stephen, who we are both very proud of.

Chris and I love travelling in and out of New Zealand. We recently bought a nice motorhome which allows us to explore our own backyard more, and once things settle down post COVID I am sure we will look to visit some other countries still on our bucket list. I have been principal at CPDS since 2010, and I can honestly say I still thoroughly enjoy my job. I feel privileged to be able to work here with your wonderful children, along with my great leadership team and the quality staff we have in our school. Like them, I am always striving to be better than before and welcome any feedback to assist in this. I remain committed to ensuring the school culture nurtures our values and dispositions, as well as delivering the best learning opportunities we can for your children, so your children can thrive now and in the future. I look forward to working alongside you as your children journey through our school. 

Please stop and chat to me whenever you see me out and about the school, or if you prefer just drop-in to my office.
