Team Te Moana (Yrs 3 & 4)
Te Moana – The Sea
The drop of water (kopata wai) leaves the shelter of the Wharemauku Stream and now becomes part of the sea. It is pushed and pulled towards Kapiti Island in the distance and is continuing to gather knowledge on its journey to the Island.
There are six classes in our Year 3 & 4 team. Our learning community is based in Rooms 22 - 27.
Team Lead, Room 22: Kate Hudson-Gill
I graduated from the University of Otago in 2009, with a Bachelor of Teaching (Primary). We then moved to the beautiful Kapiti coast, where I have been teaching at Raumati Beach School in various year levels, in between maternity and parental leave. I enjoy all year levels, it has given me a good understanding of the students learning journeys, as they progress though the school. I am passionate about making learning fun and meaningful for the students. I aim to provide an engaging and motivating environment in which students can develop key life skills alongside Literacy and Numeracy. I believe that relationships with students and parents are the key to creating an environment in which students well-being and learning can develop. In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors with my family, especially the beach, parks and cricket grounds. I also enjoy baking delicious treats for my friends and reading books.
Room 23: Rebecca Farrow
I graduated from Massey University with a Bachelor of Arts in Education before completing my Graduate Diploma of Teaching at Victoria University. Since then I have been working at a school in Porirua teaching year 3/4. It is my own children who sparked my passion for education and teaching. I strive to provide the children in my class with the experiences, enthusiasm, and inspiration that I would want my sons to receive. I am passionate about teaching and learning and strongly believe that teaching needs to be relevant, authentic and creative. I aim to create a learning environment that is positive, safe and supportive so that each child feels confident and encouraged to explore, experiment and grow. My family and I have recently to the Kapiti Coast and we enjoy spending time in the great outdoors, especially bike rides, swimming, picnics and walks on the beach with my husband and our two sons. I also enjoy listening and playing music, photography and relaxing with a good book.
