Information for

Robichaud was always willing to go that extra mile to become a part of the school community. Her continued collaboration and willingness to learn made her very easy to work with and allowed other staff members the opportunity to see her excellent teaching abilities and ideas. The School of Sport, Exercise and Nutrition is one of New Zealand’s most innovative, research-led academic groupings encompassing human nutrition and dietetics; exercise science; and sport management, coaching and education. The School delivers excellence in research and teaching and the multidisciplinary approach enables us to be a key influencer on human health, performance and physical. This new classroom structure is just what the pre-school needs to start the 2020 academic year off well. She also thanked Sikhula Sonke for their guidance and support, attributing much of her success to their involvement. Ms Nomise Plaatjies a community member, spoke of how highly regarded the ECD centre is in the community. Based on the principles of respect, responsibility and community, the centres focus on generating a supportive environment in which children can develop their interests. The teacher plans activities based on these interests and participates alongside the child. Bilingual language centres. More than 100 ECE providers offer bilingual centres.

Grade 7s and 9s I was already teaching. Throughout this experience I learned a lot about time management and the importance of parental involvement and communication. There were many occasions where messages weren’t being relayed home from school and supplementary communication on my part was needed.

The highlight of my career is working as the Health and Nutrition Manager for World Vision in the Nepal earthquake response. The work was so fast-paced and dynamic. The team I had the pleasure to work with was incredible. I got to trek into health facilities in extremely remote areas of Nepal with views people would pay thousands of dollars for.
