Whaea Amanda Papps

Whaea Amanda Papps was our Assistant Principal at Te Matauru Primary. She started with us as a member of our foundation team and held specific responsibilities in the areas she was most passionate about - curriculum leadership, transitions to school, and play based learning.

Whaea Amanda courageously lived with cancer. She passed away on Wednesday 28 July 2021. She was an important and loved person in our community. A memorial seating area has been opened near her Ōpuke teaching space. We are grateful for the support of Amanda's family in creating this project.

Donations to Nurse Maude Hospice can be made here in the name of Amanda Papps.
