Meet Our Team

Linda Reid 

Office Manager

I love being part of the Milson School whānau! I started working here more than ten years ago doing a mixture of office, library and teacher aiding. A few years ago I became the Office Manager.

I grew up in the Auckland region and have lived in the Manawatū for most of my adult life. I am married with two grown up boys, three dogs and two cats. When I'm not at work you'll find me walking the dogs or enjoying anything creative or artsy.

Lisa Prendergast 

Finance Manager

I'm from Lower Hutt and shifted to Manawatu in Dec 2019.  I started working at Milson School in March 2021 in a role I find challenging, but thoroughly enjoy!  

I enjoy walking my dog, reading, completing wasjigs puzzles and spending time with my husband, children and grandchildren.

I was born, and grew up in New Plymouth. My husband and I moved with our 2 boys to Palmerston North over 16 years ago.  I have been at Milson School for 5 years, working as a Teacher Aide, you may see me working in the office in the mornings too.  I love being part of the Milson School family.  In my spare time I love to be outside in my garden, or reading,  and I have a love of anything crafty.

Learning Support

Hi, I'm Jill. I've been a learning support teacher at Milson School for a number of years. 

I live in the country with my husband & cat. We have 3 son's, 3 daughter in-laws & 6 grand children, whom we love very much.

At Milson the thing I love to see is when a student no longer needs my support,  that is when I know I have made a difference for them in their learning.

I really enjoy my quiet time at home & mat making.

As a support staff member I have a passion for providing each child with the different tools they require to learn.

I love seeing kids learn qualities such as determination and participation by giving sports a go and enjoying being active.

Growing up on the coast I naturally fell in love with all things to do with the beach, especially boogie boarding. 

If i'm not at school, church, walking our dog Ollie or doing life with my husband Joel you'll find me in our garage at our home gym.
