Team Tama

  • Class Overview

    Our mainstream classroom
  • Team Tama

    Team Tama, situated in Rooms 5 and 6, has between 40-50 Year 3-6 students – depending on the time of the year. The teaching duties are shared by Jason Brewer and Jack Puklowski. We are also very lucky to have 3 fantastic teacher aides in Whaea Michelle, Whaea Ngariki and Matua Matt. The children are grouped according to their learning needs and these groups are flexible. The morning programme consists of the main subjects of writing, reading and maths. After lunch we enjoy our school’s community curriculum where children are involved in a wide range of different learning. Team Tama tries to establish a caring classroom where good relationships are very important. We want our tamariki to be self-motivated to always try to be the “best they can be”. Whānau are so important and we encourage you to keep in contact.

  • They say time flies – it was 1994 when I started at Castlecliff School and I have really enjoyed the journey. I feel lucky to have worked with so many talented children and supported by a great community. I am Whanganui born and bred and apart from teaching stints in the Hawkes Bay and the Manawatu, I have lived all of my life in Whanganui. I am married to Heather and we have 2 grown up children and 4 delightful granddaughters. Sports has played a major part in my life and I enjoy organising sports for our tamariki. Rugby is still my favourite sport so anytime the All Blacks or the Hurricanes win, it’s a great day!

    — Jack Puklowski
