Ko Kahuranaki taku maunga,
Ko Ngaruroro taku awa,
Ko Waipatu taku marae,
Ko Takitimu taku waka,
Ko Ngati Kahungunu taku iwi,
I te taha i ōku matua, no Ngati Porou.
I look forward to offering what I can to add to the 'kete' of knowledge for our students across Teina and Tuakana hapori. I'm a 'movie-freak' and love riding my electric skateboard! Spending quality time with family and friends at the beach, around a good BBQ on summer days and watching the Hurricanes, Warriors and All Blacks either live or on the big screen (winning of course!) is a must.

Kia ora, my name is Michael Fox. I am a designer with a passion for the environment. I grew up in Ōtautahi and first came to Haeata in mid 2018 after being invited to have a look around. I loved the place and ended up coming in whenever I could to work in the space. I was lucky enough to be offered a position as the makerspace technician and am privileged to spend every day in the makerspace helping students with their various projects.
