While I came to the profession later in life I have been teaching new entrants children since 2008. My husband works overseas and we have 2 children, the eldest of who is a Year 4 at Wairakei Primary School. I really love the country feel of our school and its strong community focus which I feel very much a part of. I am passionate about creating an environment where all children feel safe, valued and happy in their transition from early childhood to the school environment. Your child's learning journey will be centred around exploration and having fun with the aim of developing inquiring minds and lifelong learners.
Another programme that I am responsible for is 'Steaming into School'. Steaming into School is our very popular pre-school transition programme which happens most Wednesday afternoons during term time for children age 4 1/2-5 years.
Live your life in the manner that you would like your kids to live theirs. Children learn more from what you are that what you teach.Tracey O'Sullivan
