Appointments; We have two new teachers joining our team for 2020. Toby Ammundsen and Dylan Bird.
Toby comes to us from the Kapiti Coast’s Paraparumu School and prior to that Newtown School in central Wellington. Dylan comes to us from Scotland where he was teaching whilst traveling. Prior to that Dylan taught at Martinborough School.
Toby is taking the Fixed Term position for the year and Dylan the Maternity Leave position which will be created when Lauren takes leave later in term one. The Board has decided to fund Dylan to start with us from the beginning of the year to provide continuity and enable an opportunity for some in-depth reviews of certain areas of our operations.
So I can now confirm our organisation for 2020;
Marama Year 7/8 Lauren/Heidi and Toby
Turama Year 4/5/6 Julieanne and Dylan
Ramaroa nui Year 2/3 Jaki
Ramaroa iti NE/ Year 1 Rachael
NB Until Lauren begins her leave, Heidi will teach in Marama part-time. The rest of the time she will be working alongside me reviewing and developing programmes and operations across the school.
