Kia Ora – Welcome to Te Rakau Nui – our Senior Syndicate Haast Class of Year 7 & 8 students. 

I am Ally Davidson, Assistant Principal and lucky teacher of Te Rakau Nui.

My four children have attended Glenbrook School, passed through Waiuku College and are now out in ‘the big wide world’ either studying at University or earning an income. I love to learn – so I am using all the extra time I have on my hands studying subjects that are close to my heart, relevant to education today and will inform my teaching practice.

‘It takes a village to raise a child’ – Glenbrook raises wonderful children.
