Kia ora my name is Amanda Culverwell and I am fortunate enough to be part of the Matua Ngaru Team. I started my journey working in the office 8 years ago with Taupaki School. After 7 years I decided to push myself and launched into the learning pit of Matua Ngaru School and get on the wave of change! A challenge I am thoroughly enjoying.
I have been living in Muriwai Beach for the last 17 years with my husband and 3 children, twin girls Ella and Jade 14yrs and our son Zak 12yrs. I moved to New Zealand from Canada when I was 10. My most favourite things to do are camping, travelling (especially road trips with a cup of tea in hand), swimming in the ocean while my kids surf, hanging out at skateparks with the kids, documenting their life through photography and most importantly I love cups of tea!. I am also a complete neat freak and love a good chuck out :)
I look forward to meeting you and your whanau.
