Hi my name is Marise Poingdestre. I am married to Shane and we have 4 children, Jayden 27yrs, Rhys 25yrs and Tylia 20yrs who all went through Normanby school and Lahny who is currently in Room 8. We also have a beautiful grandson Oakley who is 3yrs old. I have been very involved with the PTA in the past being president for many years when my older children attended Normanby school. I loved the interaction with the staff, parents, children and Normanby community. Its very rewarding being involved with your childrens school and supporting it in any way.
I work part time at the AA in Hawera and have a passion for dogs. If I am not busy with my family and friends I am teaching handlers how to train their dogs at Hawera Dog Training and have been involved with the club for over 30yrs.
I am looking forward to another fun year with Normanby School and community making happy memories for our children.
