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.
Seta Timo - Performing Arts Coordinator
Talofa lava, o lo'u igoa o Seta Timo.
I grew up on Aldershot Street here in Aranui.
I studied the Double Bass at Jazz school and graduated with a Bachelor of Music from the University of Canterbury.
After a short stint in Japan, I came back to NZ to get my Secondary School teaching certificate and have taught Music for the last 8 years.
My favourite TV series is 'Suits' and my kryptonite is KFC.
Naomi Smith - Garden Kaiako
Mauri tū, mauri ora!
Nō Ingarangi ki te nōta, nō Kōtirana hoki ōku nei tīpuna
I whānau mai tēnei ki Waikato,
me te tipu ake nei ki Waitaha whānui.
Tena koutou te whānau.
I've been teaching for a few years now, across Kura kaupapa, bilingual and mainstream One of the things I love about coming to Haeata is meeting up with ākonga I've taught in the past and seeing them thrive in this setting - a new dawn indeed! Another is the amount of time and energy I can put into teaching the kaupapa I love - lots of hands on stuff that is good for the soul.
I live in Brighton right beside the beach, where I'm trying to develop my garden into a paradise for the senses for my family and our visitors. We have a pet cat and two pet pigs whom we love very much.

Ko Carly Werahiko toku ingoa.
I attended Aranui High school as a student from 2004 - 2007 and then returned in 2012 as the sports coordinator where I worked up until coming to Haeata. I have a 7 year old son Jahziah and my partner and I purchased our first house just over two years ago in Aranui. I have a huge passion in sport and I am really excited about the opportunities and successes Haeata will offer to our tamariki.
Lyne Tinkler - ORS Teacher
Kia ora koutou. I feel very privileged to be working at Haeata this year as the specialist special needs teacher. I am passionate about the rights of all akonga to have access to the curriculum at their level and about delivering their learning in a way that empowers them to pursue their own passions. My husband and I permanently foster two young people (16 and 9) with special needs and learning/life challenges. I love reading, knitting and not doing all the stuff that I loved doing when I was young. I hail from Dunedin and will always be a passionate and committed Highlanders supporter.

Michael Fox Makerspace Technician
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.
