Meet our wonderful staff

Since my appointment in term 2, 2015, I have found the staff, students and community to be warm and welcoming. I have been very impressed with the quality of education offered at Kai Iwi and the way that every staff member cares for every student at this school. I am enjoying being a part of this great community of learners.
