Mrs. Dawn Flowerday

Room 2, Junior Yr 0-1 "The Discoverers"
Kia ora, my name is Dawn and I am incredibly lucky to be the kaiako of the Discoverers Room at the fantastic Waerenga Kura.  We are a lively bunch of five and six year old tamariki who thrive on ‘fun’ and ‘learning’.  Our class motto is ‘Look, Listen, Learn’ – if we are looking and listening then we are also learning and ‘discovering’ new things.   Our tamariki LOVE to learn and we all do this at our own pace.  I place a great deal of importance on providing a fun and safe environment where risk taking is encouraged and success is experienced by all.  I love teaching and working with tamariki, helping them reach their full potential.  There is nothing more pleasing and fulfilling than to see our tamariki experience and enjoy their own successes, always making themselves proud!  What an absolute privilege to be part of that.


I live in the Te Kauwhata village with my family, enjoying a semi-rural life style.  As a family we love spending time at the beach along with fishing and diving.  Nothing beats a dinner of beautiful fresh kai from the sea.  I love spending time with my family and just ‘hanging’ together doing whatever comes our way.
