Amanda O'Dowda

An innovative and passionate educator and leader, Amanda joined our team in 2019, having worked at a variety of schools from large city, primary and intermediate, to small rural.

Amanda is a strong believer and advocate of Learner Agency, who believes that learners are more engaged, and therefore make increased progress, if they have choice in their own learning.

In 2024, Amanda is our Associate Principal for the senior school (Tuakana) and a cross school teacher in the New Plymouth Kahui Ako.
