Ko Jacinta tōku ingoa.
I show true loyalty to this beautiful Tītahi Bay Community. This is where I spent my youth, rummaging around the rocks, surfing the waves and competing for pretty much every club in Tītahi Bay. I attended Tītahi Bay Kindy followed by Tītahi Bay School where I have the fondest memories. I haven’t ventured very far however I did spend 10 years travelling overseas, just to find myself back in this little slice of paradise. I have 3 children, 13 year old twins and a 10 year old, they are all sporty and active in our community. I am known around our Kura as the ‘sporty’ teacher, if there’s a sports job done then 9 times out of 10 it’s me behind the scenes. I would describe myself as a firm but fun teacher, always up for a good laugh with the kids when it’s appropriate. I absolutely LOVE my job and feel extremely lucky to be in such a supportive, encouraging environment, having lots of fun along the way. In my spare time you’ll spot me at the beach or driving my kids around to a million different sporting locations, yip call me taxi driver :).

Ko Candis toku ingoa.
This coming year marks my 13th year teaching at this amazing kura. I started here as a beginning teacher and have loved every minute of getting to know and teach the wonderful tamariki that I have had the privilege to teach within the community in which I grew up. Every day I look forward to coming to school and challenging the ākonga within my class and working alongside them and their whānau during their learning journey. A whakatauki that resonates with me and guides my work as a kaiako is – ‘Ko te ahurei o te tamaiti arahia o tatau mahi’ (let the uniqueness of the child guide our work.) I believe that each child has so much to offer and it is my job to nurture the knowledge and skills they bring into our akomanga whilst encouraging and supporting them to grow not only as a learner but more importantly as a confident young person. In my spare time, you will find me enjoying quality time with my whānau and friends, indulging in delicious kai, enjoying walking up our beautiful maunga, swimming in our moana, and watching and cheering on my many of my favourite sporting teams.

Kia ora. Kō Ang Strand tōku ingoa. I have been at our beautiful kura for the past 12 years. I love Tītahi Bay, all the kids, whānau and the community feel. I have enjoyed teaching in the junior, middle and now the senior school. Our KURA values shine through in everything that we do and the staff that I work with are just amazing. With my love for the environment I love working with both our Enviro Leaders and other tamariki in the garden and helping to run our Garden to Table program with our tamariki.
In my own time I love spending time with my husband and two boys Jake and Liam. We enjoy getting outside and making the most of our weekends by getting out and about in our local community and around Wellington. I also enjoy being a Kea Leader at our local scout hall (Paparangi) where both of my boys are Keas.

Kia Ora, I’m stoked to be joining the Kura crew in 2023 for my second year of teaching. I’m a born and bred Porirua boy growing up on Champion Street in Cannons Creek while also having stints of living overseas in countries such as Korea, India and Australia. Building our tamariki to have a strong sense of culture and identity is a big part of my teaching philosophy. I have a huge passion for sports and can often be found playing league, flag, indoor netball or anything team orientated. I bring this love into my teaching and believe sports and PE support tamariki to learn valuable life long skills in a fun and active way. As a new father, the majority of my time is spent with my pēpi and wife who some of you may know as Whaea Grace. Looking forward to learning and growing alongside our Kura Street ākonga.

This kura has been a huge part of my life over the last 17 years. I currently have two mokopuna at this kura. They love everything about this kura and I get to see them 2 days a week as a classroom reliever. I treasure the many kaiako and ākonga that I am working with and many more who have left us for more exciting adventures. Natural healing practices and Rongoa are very important to our whānau well being which takes up my spare time when I’m not relaxing with my mokopuna and catching up with my tamariki and friends.

Tēnā Koutou Katoa, Ko Whitireia te maunga, Ko Parirua te awa, ko Raukawakawa te moana, Ko Ngāti Toa Rangatira te iwi. Ko Grace Mulvihill (Whaea Grace) tōku ingoa. I started mahi at Tītahi Bay School in 2015 as a beginning teacher and have loved being a part of such a supportive and caring kura ever since. I grew up in Porirua and after seeing a bit of the world, returned home and bought a house in Takapūwāhia. I now live on our papakāinga with my husband (Matua Khaylen) and our pēpi. Spending time with whānau, going on mini getaways around Aotearoa and having a good laugh with friends fills my time outside of school and if there is ever any water around you’ll find me there reconnecting with nature. In 2023 I will be busy being a māmā as well as working with our tamariki 2 days a week.

Tēnā Koutou Katoa, Ko Whitireia te maunga, Ko Parirua te awa, ko Raukawakawa te moana, Ko Ngāti Toa Rangatira te iwi. Ko Grace Mulvihill (Whaea Grace) tōku ingoa. I started mahi at Tītahi Bay School in 2015 as a beginning teacher and have loved being a part of such a supportive and caring kura ever since. I grew up in Porirua and after seeing a bit of the world, returned home and bought a house in Takapūwāhia. I now live on our papakāinga with my husband (Matua Khaylen) and our pēpi. Spending time with whānau, going on mini getaways around Aotearoa and having a good laugh with friends fills my time outside of school and if there is ever any water around you’ll find me there reconnecting with nature. In 2023 I will be busy being a māmā as well as working with our tamariki 2 days a week.
