Kia ora Room 25 Students and Parents/Caregivers

Welcome to Room 25 and Team Mahi Tahi! I am super excited to meet you all and begin our journey as a class.

I am Matua Timote Naulivou, but I am called Matua Mote in the classroom. An interesting fact about me is that I was a student at Berkley a long time ago. I am of Tongan and Pākehā descent.  My wife Shanice and I are massive fans of board games; so much so that our board game cupboard is overflowing!

In education, I am really passionate about our holistic growth and learning. This year at Berkley is packed with a variety of learning experiences that will help us grow our heads, our hands and our hearts. In Term 1, we have both swimming sports (end of Week 2) and Camp Aongatete, giving us awesome out-of-class learning opportunities. As we enter the year with the "taking up the challenge" mentality, we will get many opportunities to experience new things and grow.

As a class, we are a team. So you can expect to be shown support and care, as you also show support and care to your classmates.

Looking forward to getting to know you all, 

Matua Mote
