Kia ora koutou, I’m Mary Pretorius, an educator who is passionate about empowering all learners to achieve success. As teachers, we have the privilege of guiding students on their journey to becoming lifelong learners. I am passionate about developing student wellbeing and skills, such as collaboration, creativity, and curiosity. I believe a student’s learning pathway is an on-going and lifelong process that is strengthened by building strong relationships and making positive connections with the community, home and school. Outside of school, I love hanging out with my partner Nick and cat, Jose. I’m an avid sports fan and enjoy hiking, reading, and the beach. You can also find me pottering away on assignments as I work towards completing my Masters of Leadership and Management in Education.
