We first met Matua Brody as a Learning Assistant while he trained as a teacher.
Brody quickly become a key part of our team. His attitude towards whānaungatanga matches the idea of connecting locally to our community and he is a great sports coach too.
Matua Brody reminds us that as a boy Richie McCaw wanted to be an All Black and his Uncle told him “you don't just want to be an All Black, you want to be a great All Black”. Matua Brody strives not just to be a teacher but to be a great teacher, a teacher who is a life-long learner who actively demonstrates all the Puketapu School values.
