Although I am proudly South African, (have you been watching the cricket! ) I am so grateful to New Zealand and its people for affording my family the opportunity to explore, grow and learn new things in this amazing land. I can’t believe the children I taught in year 1 are now the seniors of Cornwall Park School. Darryl, my husband and I have two children – Lauren, who is studying to be a teacher and Ryan who is studying to be an architect, both who still live at home. We enjoy having adventures as a family, eating different foods and we love the beach. You will often find us swimming and walking our little dogs on the Eastern Bays after school and on the weekends. So much to do and see, we often have friends and family staying to share this beautiful land.
