I am the Office Manager at Wairakei School. I have been in this position since July 1994. I am married to Ash and have lived in the Wairakei district throughout our married life. We have four children, Brian, Lisa, Gary and Vicki and two daughter-in-laws Louise and Emma and two son-in-laws Adrian and Alex. We have ten lovely grandchildren, Abbey, Beau, Ally, Leah, Alma, Regan, Brax, Nate, Indie and Ashton.
I truly love my job as Office Manager. I have met many families since I have been here and made some lifetime friends. I really enjoying seeing the students start at our school, leave as great role models and then continue their journey.
I believe Wairakei Primary School gives all students the best possible learning environment and opportunities, the support from all staff is second to none. I can think of no other place I’d rather work than here.
I love my job here, no two days are the same.Val Mansfield
