He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata!
I am a ‘people person’. From a young age, people fascinated me. My passion for people has seen me travel the world, become a teacher and develop into an educational leader. This year I am celebrating my 30th year in education. I particularly enjoy working with young people, helping them to make sense of the world around them – guiding them in learning to be the best they can be.
I love teaching and believe Huntly Primary School is a wonderful learning community. We have amazing talented students who make everyday fun and exciting. It has been my privilege over the years to be a part of many families and in some small way touch the lives of so many people. I love spending time at the beach and enjoy getting outdoors. I am looking forward to a wonderful year with our families and students.
I love teaching at Huntly Primary, I have been part of the Junior school for now 4 years in the New Entrance class, I enjoy seeing our students grow with their learning and in height haha! I enjoy being out on the water in my kayak, with friends and family and reading a good book. Come and visit Mahi-Tahi Whanau anytime.
I really love working with the tamariki and all the dedicated staff at Huntly Primary. I love the outdoors and also music and being creative. I have worked at H.P.S for 8 years now and am dedicated to the students I encounter. In Awhina Whanau we strive to support each to reach our full potential. I wish everyone an awesome 2019.
I have just come full circle and have moved back into Manaaki Whanau in the middle school where my journey at HPS started almost 6 years ago. I am very excited for 2019 and can’t wait to engage our tamariki in their mahi!
Kaua e mate wheke me mate ururoa Do not die like an octopus, instead die like a hammerhead shark. Do not give up so easily, instead fight until the bitter end.
Fakalofa lahi atu kia mutolu oti ma fanau – I look forward to what 2019 has in store for both myself and our tamaiti. My educational journey has taken me many places – from the City of Sails to Brisbane Australia and now the mighty Waikato. The whakatauki above, for me, refers to having a ‘Can Do’ attitude and ‘Never giving up’ when faced with adversity. My door is always open – so feel free to pop on in. To feleveia, Mr Hunia.
I am a beginning teacher here at Huntly Primary School. I have been apart of this wonderful school environment for awhile now doing relieving off and on since graduating last year. I am very excited to get on with the year and work alongside your amazing children. I also love meeting whanau so you are more than welcome to come in and have a chat.
I am Johan and I have been at Huntly Primary School for just over 8 years. I am the technology teacher in Tomau Whanau (Woodwork), teaching year 7 and 8.
I love teaching the students new skills building wooden projects using basic hand tools and machines. Students can be creative in designing their own designs for their projects. This year we will also introduce students to coding training in Robotics. Please come and say hello whenever around the technology block.
This year is my third year teaching at Huntly Primary and I am looking forward to a fantastic year in Aronui Whanau. It is a privilege to be able to be a part of our wonderful students learning journey. On the weekends I love being with my family, running, eating and spending time around the water.
My name is Maureen Bryan and I have been working at Huntly Primary School for just over 20 years. Initially I was in a full class teaching role with seniors but over the last few years I have been in the Technology Dept. teaching Fabric and this year Food (as well) Tech. I enjoy being part of the Huntly Primary Whanau and watching the children develop from youngsters into maturing young adults as they progress through the school.
It’s great to be back. I’m excited about what this year has to offer. I’m looking forward to working with our kids and alongside our parents and together I hope that we can make Huntly Primary the best little school in the country. Kia Kaha!
I have been the receptionist at Huntly Primary for 15 years. I enjoy welcoming new staff, students & whanau to our wonderful school. I enjoy travelling overseas & around NZ. We have a house at Cooks Beach and love spending time there with our friends & family. We have 3 delightful grandsons (2 in Australia) with another due in NZ next month.
I have worked at Huntly Primary School for 17 years now as Executive Officer. I have a long history with our school and families, I really enjoy getting to know our students. Outside of school I love to sail on our boat, travel and spend time with my gorgeous grandchildren.
I’m working as a teacher aide this year again and enjoy the challenge of working with our children. I have two children who also attend Huntly Primary. Returning to Huntly after being in Brisbane for ten years it’s great to be able to reconnect with our local community.
