I am a qualified teacher who used to relieve at OPS. I also taught bucket drumming groups for a few months when I first moved to Tauranga. I teach music at Matua School, and Drum kit at Ōtūmoetai College.
I am of Kai Tahu descent, and am passionate about forming good relationships with local Māori especially through my band 'The Harmonic Resonators' and my enthusiasm for local knowledge in our curriculum.
If you would like to support our Kapa haka group please contact firstname.lastname@example.org; practices are on Friday afternoons in the Hall.
'kaore he kaihaka toa ahau, engari ka hiahia au ki te whakatū ai ki ngā kaupapa reo, te aroha mō te waiata, me te warawara mō te mātauranga māori ki roto i tō tātou kura'
