My name is Joanne Ngatipa, I look forward to being part of the Central Kids whānau and am excited about starting my new teaching position at Central Kids Paraōnui. I attended Paraōnui Kindergarten as a child and I feel incredibly privileged to be returning as a teacher.
I am returning to Tokoroa from Auckland with my husband Des, who will be start a new teaching job at Tainui Full Primary School.
We are going to be living with my parents just around the corner from Central Kids Paraōnui and look forward to becoming a part of a wonderful community.
I wish you all a great holiday and hope to meet you in 2017 refreshed and ready for a great learning journey.
