WE ARE TEAM MĀHARAHARA

TEAM


MĀHARAHARA

Māharahara is our Middle Team (Years 3-4) in Kura Auraki (mainstream) and is housed in Akomanga 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9 (the old library). Māharahara is led by Matt Costley, who is fondly referred to as ‘Matua Matt’ by the children.

Māharahara refers to the many streams that flow down from the Māharahara Peak.

Kia Ora! My name is Matua Sam and I am teaching the awesome students in Akomanga 5 this year. I am very excited for 2020 in Māharahara. I have a keen interest in sports and art. Outside of school I love being outdoors and spending time with friends and family.

Kia Ora koutou! I’m Jordyn, AKA Miss Coulston, and I’m excited to be part of the team at Central Normal this year! After doing a placement at Central in my final year of study in 2019, I knew it was the school and community that I wanted to be a part of. Prior to studying, I spent a couple of years living in Thailand working for an organisation that fights human trafficking, and this really taught me how important education is.
I grew up on a farm in the Wairarapa, and I love to get home and see my family as often as I can. In my spare time, I enjoy getting outdoors for a walk or some hunting or camping, I love to cook and paint, and I love Muay Thai. 
I’m really looking forward to getting to know you and your tamariki in 2020!

Kia Ora! I’m Rachel Mason and I'm excited to return to Maharahara team this year to teach Year 3 and 4 students in Akomanga 9. I am sure 2020 will be a brilliant year of learning, fun and exploration. In my spare time I enjoy playing netball, heading out along our beautiful river walks with my dog Lucy, spending time with family and friends and trying my hand at DIY renovations on my home - if you have any handy hints, feel free to let me know!
