Hi.  My name is Donna McDonald. I joined the staff here at Matahui School in May this year (2018) to team teach with Christine Croskery. I am wife to Fin McDonald and mum to Ella who is four and Louis who is two.  We live on a beautiful property right here in Katikati. We love growing all our own produce and have started our own blueberry, strawberry and raspberry farm. Prior to teaching at Matahui, I started and sold my own florist business and prior to this, I taught in a wonderful school in Tokoroa for four years.

I believe Matahui is a safe, warm and inclusive family environment. The staff at Matahui work well as a team and with parents to met children’s individual needs.  The small class sizes are wonderful, and I thoroughly enjoy working along Christine in creating a coherent, warm and engaging learning environment.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
