Principal, Te Rōpū Hautūtanga
Tena koutou katoa.
Ko Taranaki te Maunga
Ko Ngamotu te moana
Ko Tracy toku ingoa.
Ki to tatou tumuaki i tenei kura o Miritana.
I am Tracy and I feel very grateful to be the Principal of Milson School.
I come from New Plymouth and although I have lived in Palmerston North for more years than New Plymouth, I still consider Taranaki my home.
It is a pretty special thing to follow your dreams, and when I was five, I had dreams of becoming a teacher. Glad to say those dreams came true.
I value relationships and creating those educationally powerful ones between our students, their whānau and school is something that I am hugely passionate about.
I’d like to say I like long walks along the beach – but I don’t, I hate the sand and the wind and can doggy paddle and that’s about it! I love cooking and baking and have a soft spot for raw mixture – shortbread would be my fav! I like walking my dog who has trained me to give him human food and pretty much is the boss of me!
My whole theory around school is simple - children (and families) need to be happy. Happy children will learn.
He aha te mea nui o te ao?
What is the most important thing in the world?
He tangata, he tangata, he tangata
It is the people, the people, the people.
