Steve Van Nes
Matua Steve is the name, teaching Year 3 is the game. Kaurilands is the best school on the planet and I am so lucky to be a part of this amazing community. I love to innovate and empower our tamariki to be the best they can. Outside school life I keep busy with my gorgeous 2 year old and newborn.
Welcome to Rūma Tekau mā rua. A place for collaboration, fun and engaging learning experiences. We are a bunch of happy learners so pop in, say hello or come in and join our learning journey!
Catriona Pianina [email protected] I absolutely love teaching Year 3 at our kura! I am passionate about the wellbeing of our tamariki and making time to learn how I can best help each child be the best they can be! In my spare time I like to chill out in nature, swim, redecorate and play with our two new mischievous kittens!
Kia Ōra. Rūma Tekau Mā Toru is all about using our strengths and talents in supporting each other to grow and learn. We value unity in diversity!
I am privileged to be leading the Yr 3 team. I absolutely love teaching at Kaurilands where children are given a fabulous environment in which to be curious and involved. My passion is to provide motivating and engaging opportunities to learn. I love time with my family and friends and to travel.
2020 will be my 6th year teaching at Kaurilands and I am lucky to be part of the Yr 3 team in Rūma Iwa alongside Robyn. My favourite thing about teaching is being part of children's personal and academic growth, helping them gain the skills required to be successful in all their future endeavours.
I am thrilled to be joining the Yr 3 team and look forward to many learning adventures with our tamariki. My passion is to create a positive classroom environment where students feel supported and excited about their learning. I love travelling, music, photography and time with my family.
