Jarrad Welsh

Acting Principal

Jarrad WelshI have been teaching for twelve years in a variety of educational settings  from New  Zealand, Korea and the United Kingdom. Originally a South Cantabrian, I moved to Christchurch with my wife Sarah and son Alex in 2010. I am an avid sports fan, playing and following most sports. My other interests include music, motor sports and a love of all technology. In the school holidays I like to spend as much time as possible down in Twizel, boating, fishing, biking and just relaxing with my family.

Each year I like to develop a TEAM philosophy to teaching and learning in the classroom, based around the values of Aroha, Perseverance, Responsibility, Honesty, Manners and the schools vision of digging deep to achieve personal best. I endeavour to engage and empower students to take a lead role in their own learning and support the learning of others in our team.

Shelly Morley

School Secretary

Shelly photoMy family and I emigrated from the UK  in 1997 We live in Prebbleton and now call New Zealand home.  I have worked in the corporate sector, primary schools and a high school. I am thrilled to be back in a primary school environment as the school secretary at Broadfield.  This job is always challenging and every day is different. I love the interaction with the children and their families and getting involved in the community.

We have quite a few animals, which keeps me busy.  In my spare time I enjoy walking the dogs, reading, doing puzzles, computer games and travelling.

Elisabeth Alberts

Teacher Aide

ElisabethI am Elisabeth Alberts and I work as a Teacher Aide.  As a graduate in Business Administration, I became involved in assisting with education when my children were very young.  I found it far more interesting and rewarding than Human Resources!  I work with children individually, doing precision teaching of phonics, literacy and numeracy.  In addition, I support the teachers with their reading, writing and numeracy programmes, working with small groups of children.  I run a weekly Perceptual Motor Programme for the New Entrants and Year 1 and 2.  I teach children singing and prepare a choir for the annual Lion’s Primary School Music Festival. In my spare time I sing in two choirs and I am a book worm.
