St Joseph's School

Leading in Faith, Learning for Life

Welcome to
St Joseph’s School

After 28 years working and leading in International Schools throughout the world, it is a pleasure to return to NZ alongside my family.  I feel privileged to be leading a school whose philosophy is close to my own. A school that provides quality, intentional learning experiences and authentic encounters with Christ.

Like Dr. Ross Greene: Renowned child psychologist, I believe that ‘learners do well if they can’. It is my responsibility to ensure every student under my care does just that. Ensuring they feel safe, supported and make excellent progress in their learning is a shared goal which is achieved by building capacity in our staff.

“Our strength is not ours alone, but as part of a collective” In my spare time, I like to get close to nature by walking – My family have been heard saying I must be part ‘Massai’. I treasure every moment I get to spend with my family.
