Hi, my name is Raewynne Hill (Whaea Raewynne) and I am the teacher in Akomanga 9. I strongly believe in developing a Community of Learners where the students and I are partners in our learning journey. I have a strong interest in literacy and love seeing my students being creative while exploring their interests and developing their learning.

Kia ora everyone! The children know me as Whaea Chantel and I am in Akomanga 10. Together with your tamariki, we aim to develop a love for learning, while also fostering other crucial skills. It takes a community to raise a child and I am grateful that I am part of that community. Together we can help our little people become the best versions of themselves here at Central Normal School and in the wider world.
