Ko Tina Meredith tōku ingoa.
Nō Kiribati āhau

Talofa, Mauri, Mālō e lelei and Kia Ora! I have lived all over the Pacific including Kiribati, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Fiji and Samoa. I was schooled in Australia before moving to New Zealand and then spent six years back in Samoa with my husband and two children before moving back to New Zealand in 2012. I gained my Teaching Degree from the University of Auckland in 2018. Next year I will have been with the Glenbrook School community for 4 years! My son Malek is also here at Glenbrook School and is loving the country environment. 2022 will be an exciting time and I am looking forward to the new adventure ahead in Uenuku.

Nō Te Awamutu āhau

I grew up in the Waikato and completed my Post Graduate Diploma of Teaching in 2000. I have worked in a variety of different schools from small to very big. I have been at Glenbrook School for seven years and am currently Deputy Principal and Junior Team Leader. I have two amazing girls- 9 year old Isla and 11 year old Niamh, who also attend Glenbrook School.  We love to go on lots of mini adventures together as a family. I am looking forward to seeing the students in Uenuku flourish and supporting them to realise their potential.

Ko Kristy Horton tōku ingoa
Nō Thames āhau

I grew up on the beautiful Thames coast and completed my Bachelor of Education and Bachelor Sport and Leisure studies at the University of Waikato in 2014. My partner and I made the move to Auckland soon after but quickly made the move out to Waiuku not long after the birth of our first child in 2019. I have been lucky enough to spend the last two years at home with my beautiful children; Elliot who is 4 and Emily who is almost 2yrs. We love spending our days exploring all the local beaches and bush walks. I am looking forward to returning to Glenbrook School and getting to know all the students in Uenuku.
