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 Rachel Mason, who is fondly referred to as ‘Miss Mason’ by the children.

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

Kia Ora! I’m Rachel Mason and I am lucky enough to be the team leader of Māharahara - our middle school team full of amazing Year 3 and 4 students. This year you will find me in Akomanga 7. I really enjoy getting to know the students in my class, in our team and in our wider kura, along with their whānau, and seeing them thrive in their learning each and every day! In my spare time I enjoy playing netball, heading out along our beautiful river walks with my little Foxy dog Daisy, spending time with family and friends and trying my hand at DIY renovations in my home - if you have any handy hints, feel free to let me know!

Talofa! I’m Galatia Rose and I’m excited to be back teaching full-time in Akomanga 6. I am looking forward to supporting your child through their learning journey this year. The curriculum areas I am passionate about are visual arts, technology and writing. In my spare time I will usually be hanging with my family - my toddler, teen step daughter and partner. I love being outdoors, keeping my indoor plants alive, reading and being creative.

Kia ora Koutou. I am Whaea Sjaan. I have returned from a term of relieving and I am so excited to be part of the Māharahara team and the wider school community.
My joy in teaching comes from developing relationships with tamariki, and encouraging self expression in the forms of Literacy and the Arts.
I live in Marton which has a wonderful pool where I can often be found. 
Recently I have been getting to know Wellington City where I like to spend time with my daughter and I also have a son who will be leaving us behind soon for a life in Japan.

Kia ora koutou, I am really excited to return to our fantastic kura in 2022. I have had an enjoyable summer break, making the most of the fantastic weather by getting out and about around the beautiful Manawatū. I am looking forward to getting to know the students in Akomanga 5 and hearing all about their holiday adventures. My curriculum passions and strengths are in P.E, Maths and Reading. I closely follow a number of sports and also enjoy reading in my spare time.
