Cathie Stenhouse

SENCO/Learning Support Co-ordinator

It is great to be leading a group of talented teachers in Pukeko team  this year.  Room 15 is where you will find me and a group of Year 2 and 3  children who love learning and having fun.   We enjoy lots of creative activities where the children's curiosity and imagination are encouraged.   Last year I was on study leave until Term 4 and took over Room 15 for the last term.  This year I am sharing the class with Mrs Andrews as I have a new role as Learning Support Facilitator(part time).  I am also involved with well being, and I am looking forward to the introduction of mindfulness this year. 

This is my fourth year at OPS.  I have taught in schools in Taupo, Wellington and the UK.  I enjoy living in Tauranga and being close to the sea.  You can find me most weekends on the beach, walking, swimming or just sitting watching the world go by.
