Senior Leadership Team
Team Leader Tainui
My favourite quote is ‘Life is a journey, not a destination’ and in my teaching career I can honestly say that I have been on an incredible journey of learning many new things and I am still learning.
I am passionate about teaching, particularly Literacy, Maths, and The Arts. During my time here at Morrinsville Intermediate I have been fortunate to have made many life-long friends, have enjoyed working alongside some great teachers, experienced two school exchange trips to Japan and one to Noumea and I thoroughly enjoy teaching a great bunch of students from the Morrinsville area.
I look forward to meeting with you all.
Team Leader Aranui
My name is Kylie Wells and am born and bred in Morrinsville. I came through Morrinsville Intermediate and College before gaining my Bachelor of Education through Massey University in Palmerston North. I then returned back to my home town where I taught for nearly 7 years at David Street School before marrying a local and having my own two beautiful girls. I went on to teach locally in a variety of roles and have spent the past 7 years teaching at Springdale School.
I am actively involved in many aspects of our beautiful town, particularly in sports where I play basketball, volleyball and netball. My children currently attend David Street School and my step-son attends Morrinsville College. When I am not teaching your wonderful children I am normally outdoors with my whanau enjoying bushwalks and bike riding. I love to participate in adventure races and team events with friends and enjoy challenging myself and my students to try new things and give everything their best effort.
This is my third year teaching at Morrinsville Intermediate and my first year as Team Leader for Aranui
Feel free to pop in to Room 4 and introduce yourself, I look forward to meeting you.

Team Leader Technology / Specialists
Nga Mihi Nui Kia Koutou Katoa, Warm greetings to you all
My name is James Higgins and this is my 8th year teaching at Morrinsville Intermediate. I have previously completed 3 years of primary teaching at David Street Primary School. I completed my Bachelor of teaching at the University of Waikato in 2008. I am Waikato born and bred and have been brought up in a rural background with my parents being farmers.
I am very passionate about teaching at Morrinsville Intermediate. I really enjoy the positive vibe and support you gain from the wider community. At Morrinsville Intermediate when not teaching I am normally found coaching and playing sport or supporting other teachers with sports organisation.
My interests outside of school are rugby refereeing, horse racing, travelling and spending time at the beach. I really enjoy teaching at Morrinsville Intermediate because of the positive nature of all our students.
I look forward to catching up with you.
