Dale Wang- Administration Service Manager
Kia Ora! I grew up in a small town called Ashhurst in the North Island, and then moved down here to study in 2009. I finished study in 2016 (I'm a slow learner!) and then taught at Canterbury University for a while before landing here in Haeata.
Barb Britten - Enrolment and support administrator
I began at Haeata Community Campus in July 2016 and have been blessed to have had the opportunity to
support the Haeata Community in many practical ways
since my employment. . As of 2019 I am now part of the administration team as the Enrolments Officer and continue to support this wonderful Diverse community. It
brings so much joy building relationships with both whanau
and akonga. Over the time at Haeata these relationships
I have two teenage children and have a huge heart for the
community on the East. This began in 2011 as I was a
Support and Welfare worker for the Salvation Army after
the February Earthquake. I also attended Avondale Primary
School from years 1-6.
I have a background as a company director, retail
management along with early childhood education.

Ko Rongowhakaata te Iwi
He uri ahau no Te Tairawhiti engari i tipu ake au ki Otautahi.
Before coming to Haeata I was in the health sector working with pepi and their whānau.
Along with my manaakitanga and compassion for tamariki I bring across ten years experience working in the eastern communities of Christchurch, where I myself was born, raised and educated.
I have similar values to that of Haeata Community Campus and implement these into my own life and whānau. I am also passionate in building strong foundations for our tamariki to be driven, ambitious and motivated adults.
Mauri ora ki a tatou katoa.
