I 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.Contact me
My 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.Contact me
I’ve been part of the Broadfield school community for the past 12 years. I was the School Secretary for 6 years and have now moved into a part time role as Admin Support.

I 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.Contact me
