  • Kia ora. My name is Daphne Stedman. I live on a lifestyle block in Maxwell with my husband, two cats, chickens, sheep and a few cattle. I have three beautiful daughters and three granddaughters who I love to visit in Raumati. For recreation I walk, swim, sing and play the piano and in summer I occasionally kayak. I love worshipping God at Westmere presbyterian church and am kept busy with many activities there. I really enjoy seeing children develop in these early years, and it is a privilege to be teaching and learning alongside them.
