Matai

Tena Koutou Whanau!

Welcome to Matai. My name is Jan Maul. A little bit about myself...I was born and raised in Germany and come to New Zealand about 10 years ago. I always knew I wanted to work with children so I decided to become a Primary Teacher, which was the best decision I have ever made. 

I look forward seeing you all back after an awesome Easter Holiday. I can't wait hearing about how the children have spent their holidays.  

If you haven't joined our Matai Faebook Page already, come get a form from me so you too can become a member. Please do so as our page can give you a real insight into your child’s learning and is a great communication tool. 

Noho ora mai,

Jan Maul
