Ko Tararua te maunga, Ko Heretaunga te awa, No Upper Hutt ahau, No Otepoti te kāinga ināianei, Ko Shannon toku ingoa.
I am delighted to be joining the community at OGHS for 2019 and look forward to getting to know the staff and students better. I have a background teaching at secondary school and recently at tertiary level, as well as in the outdoor education field as a children’s ski instructor and sea kayak guide. My partner Warwick is the HOD of PE at Logan Park, and we have a daughter and son. I am passionate about encouraging young people to be active, be in the outdoors, and develop an environmental ethic. I will be acting HOD for 2019, teaching Physical Education and Senior Outdoor Education.
