My main passion is to work with Maori and Pacifica tamariki and to provide them with, culturally
responsive learning programmes that will help them reach their full potential.
I am particularly excited about being given the opportunity to apply for the

look at the leadership of colleagues in raising the achievement of students in school, with a particular
focus on Maori and Pacifica. I would be very interested in the outcome of those
