Kia ora koutou! I am Lesley Blackmore and the teacher in Akomanga 19. A classroom full of vibrant and curious children is a learning place of immense importance. I feel so fortunate to be part of the process where your children's learning and well being is nurtured, enhanced and encouraged, especially so through the medium of learning through play. This type of teaching is so beautifully tailored for the Year 2 age and will be an exciting opportunity for us all to feel valued and honoured.

Kia ora everyone! The children know me as Whaea Chantel and I am in Akomanga 21. 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.
