Kia ora,

Ko Otawa tōku maunga

Ko Rapa-rapa-a-hoe tōku awa

Ko Hei tōku marae Ko Waitaha-a-Hei tōku iwi

Ko Te Arawa tōku waka

Nō Te Puke ahau

Ko Mikaere October tōku ingoa

Mikaere has worked in both a large secondary school and smaller community school, which gives him insight into the considerations of different settings. He is passionate about making education equitable and providing learning opportunities for ākonga through both curriculum and extra-curricular activities.
