Kia Ora


My name is Samantha Kereopa and I am one of three Hauora Teachers that make up Te Mahuri. Like many of our staff I am also an ex pupil of Turaki, starting in 1994 with Whaea Chelsea. I have two young sons of my own who keep me busy. 


I have mainly taught in High Schools and have a passion for Health & Physical Education. Since beginning with Turaki last year I have really enjoyed working with our senior students and helping them prepare for secondary school life. 


We have a fantastic teaching team in Te Mahuri and I am proud to be a part of this. We work collaboratively with all our students and offer them a wide range of learning opportunities. Turaki has a strong leadership team and as a result our students are well cared for and know what is expected of them,


I believe in developing and maintaining positive relationships with all my students so they can learn in a trusting and secure environment. I loved school growing up so my aim is to help others feel the same. We have structure, routine, fun, humor, challenge and the odd practical joke in Te Mahuri - every student's dream classroom. We are also lucky to be blessed with such amazing students.


Please do make contact with me
