Greetings. I am Sue Taylor. I've been the Principal of Omakere School for 5 years. I come from a background of teaching and leadership in rural schools around the Bay of Plenty .  I have 4 children and 4 grandchildren spread from Invercargill to Melbourne and working in fields from Healthcare to Self-Employed. I have a strength for teaching mathematics, and GAFE (Google Apps for Education), and  believe in focusing our school towards strength-based teaching and learning.

I am proud to be the Leader at Omakere School. 

Omakere School is an innovative and forward-thinking Enviroschool. We enjoy knowing each of our tamariki well and providing rich and interesting learning opportunities that build on their individual passions! The students who choose Omakere School come from the local community and also travel from Waipawa and Waipukurau on our own school bus.

At Omakere School, we teach our tamariki to problem-find and problem-solve. Students use digital tools to create and collaborate and weave environmental manaakitanga through their learning.

Sue Taylor
