TARARUA

Tararua is our team of teachers and teacher aides who support our ORS (Ongoing Resource Scheme) students. This team is led by Pipi Blundell, our Assistant Principal.

Tararua is wāhi tapu; a sacred and significant place to the tangata whenua, Rangitāne. The Tararua Range runs for 80 km from the Manawatū Gorge to the upper reaches of the Hutt Valley.

Kia Ora Koutou
My name is Liz Harrison and I am lucky enough to be an ORS teacher at CNS. I love getting to know my students and finding out their individual interests, so I can get them excited about learning and to grow their 'super powers’. I love seeing our ORS students celebrated within the classroom by their amazing peers and staff within the school.
I have recently moved from Wellington to Palmerston North and enjoy spending the weekends exploring all the parks and amazing outdoor activities that the Manawutu has to offer with our 3 sons.

Kia ora,  I’m Simone Murphy and I have the privilege of being an ORS Teacher at CNS.   I believe strongly that once children have their belonging, know they have a place and feel safe and secure they can achieve.   I love being able to be part of the children’s growth and watching them learn alongside their peers and teachers in a safe and nurturing environment.
