Welcome to Te Aro School new website!
Kia ora koutou.
Ko Sue toku ingoa.
Ko au te tumuaki o te Kura nei.
I am extremely lucky to have been the principal here at Te Aro for the past twelve years. Our kura is a place where tamariki, whānau and staff feel a sense of belonging. We strive to uphold the mana, the building up of all learners (big, small, young, older) in our school community.
In my spare time I enjoy walking my dog Molly around the south coast of Wellington where we from time to time see dolphins, seals, and whales. I really love it when my daughters are back in New Zealand so we can spend time together.
Kake tonu Te Aro.
Ever Upwards Te Aro.
Ko Ray taku ingoa.
I am the Deputy Principal and syndicate leader of the senior school syndicate, Te Hokioi.
I have been at Te Aro school since 2005. Before that I worked in London for four years and Gisborne for three years.
Outside of school I enjoy sports with time spent coaching rugby teams and I love mountain biking on Wellington's many tracks. I also visit Lyall Bay and Seatoun beaches often, walking my rather naughty dog.
Year 0 & 1
Kia ora and ni hao,
My name is Samantha, and I am a teacher in Ruma Tawa. I love teaching the Year 0-1 students of Te Aro school and feel amazing watching them grow and learn new things. The passion they have for learning is such a rewarding experience for me as their teacher.
My family is originally from Taiwan, however I was born and raised in Aotearoa. Both countries have a special place in my heart. I love speaking to the children in Mandarin and sharing my culture with them. When I am not at school I enjoy cuddling with my lovely dog and spending quality time with my friends and family.
Ngā mihi nui,
Year 1 & 2
My name is Michelle. I moved to New Zealand with my husband and two children from the United States in June of 2022. I have taught for more than 20 years in the US and am excited to be teaching in NZ. I taught Spanish in the US and am excited to be learning and using te reo Māori at Te Aro School.

Te Aro School is a multicultural school that warmly welcomes diversity. Te Aro School has experienced upward growth over the years with the hard work of the personnel and excellent management.
Ko Jo taku ingoa.
I work part-time in the office with Georgie and do a few hours in the library. I have been involved with Te Aro School both as a parent and a staff member since 2014. I feel lucky to be part of such a wonderful school.
Kapa Haka Kaiako
I am Molly. I am a retired service dog. I have been at Te Aro School now for several years and really enjoy spending time with the students and staff. You can often find me lying in a sunny patch in the staffroom. I enjoy eating fruits and vegetables and going for short walks in the school grounds with the students. When I am not at school I love walking around the south coast with my family.
