Room 11

Tena Koutou Te Whanau,

“Learning is a gift even when pain is your teacher” 

Hello Parents/Caregivers and tamariki ma welcome to a new and exciting year at M.S. 2018. I hope that you all have had a wonderful and relaxing summer holiday. I am sure that you are all very eager and excited to start school again and I would like to welcome you to Room 11.

My name is Nicole Healey, the children call me Miss Healey and I am the very excited teacher of Room 11. I have a partner and enjoy riding horses and going to the gym.

If we have not met yet, please feel free to come into the class to introduce yourself and ask any questions, or check out your children’s work, they always like to show off what they have been doing in class.
