Thanks to all of our staff for their energy and professionalism during a challenging year.

We welcomed new staff at the start of the year and are farewelling a number of different staff now we have ended the year. 

Awesome Amanda Slade spent 2 terms with us teaching a new programme before moving on to some great initiatives including working as a Rugby Liaison Officer and supporting Pasifika learning opportunities.  

Energetic Maths teacher, Phil Macdivitt who has been relieving in our Maths department for 2 terms goes to a permanent teaching position at Queens. 

Teacher Aide Adem Robati-Mani has moved to Timaru after 2 great years supporting and extending lots of our students. 

Our dynamic and inspiring Dance and PE teacher Regan King is off on her exciting OE after 2 years with us. 

Our talented Head of Drama, Dianne Dupres is embarking on new adventures after 5 years leading Drama in new directions.  

Our wonderful International Dean and ESOL teacher Christine Bennet is retiring after 7 years with us. 

There is a separate article farewelling our amazing Omimi House Dean, Ang Henderson. 

And our staff commitment and contributions feature in many of the stories, reports and articles throughout the Yearbook.
