Kei te tangi te ngākau mā rātou mā kua haere ki te pō. Rātou te hunga mate ki a rātou. Tātou te hunga ora e toitū ana i te mata o te whenua, tēnā koutou katoa.

At Chanel College we develop students with a holistic education and the skills they will need in the 21st century to take their learning outside of the classroom and into the world.

Over the thirty-eight years that I have been teaching and leading in Education across all levels and sectors in New Zealand, I have gained considerable experience. I am totally committed to creating a learning environment in which student formation is a central focus and learning outcomes are equitable.

At Chanel we equip students with the top five skills needed in the future so that they can thrive in the world of work and help to build a better future. Through these five skills we challenge, encourage and support students to think critically, creatively, collaboratively and globally: Analytical thinking and innovation Active student centred learning strategies Creativity, originality and initiative Technology, design and programming Critical thinking and analysis.
