I really enjoy the support that NPS gets from its school community. I am a keen user and promoter of technology, and love seeing children given opportunities for real-life learning that connects them to their own ‘world’. I love the passion and desire that all our NPS staff have to provide the best learning opportunities for all the children. I enjoy watching a good game of any sport, especially my life long favourite Rugby League team the Canterbury Bulldogs. Having ridden motorbikes most of my life, I ride my motorbike to work most days. I love spending down time getting away to the beach, getting in some family time on the ski fields or heading away in the caravan whenever possible.
