Manawaru School Board of Trustees
Tell us something about yourself.
I was born in Croatia and I lived there until I moved to New Zealand in 2012.
Swapping beaches and the sea for the farm life was a big change but I loved it from day one.
I have 3 children at Manawaru School in rooms 2,3 & 4, and they are second generation students at the school- my husband and all of his siblings were Manawaru kids too.
I enjoy music, going to the races with family and friends and supporting my children at many sports they do- always being the loudest cheerleader!
How was school for you?
I always loved school except for P.E. I’m sure everyone knows how much talent for sports I have.
While attending primary school I went to the music school at the same time and learned the music theory and how to play the piano.
I graduated from university with a double major in German language & literature and Russian language & literature and I worked as an interpreter whilst I lived in Croatia.
What is something you have learnt since coming on the Board of Trustees?
I have only been on the BOT for few months but I really enjoy seeing how the school system works behind the scenes and I’m glad to have such great team of people on the board with me- everyone with the same goal- to make sure all the children get the best possible education and opportunities.
