General Information

Kia ora koutou,

Kō Mākeo te maunga
Kō Waiaua te awa
Kō Omarumutu te marae
Kō Tutāmure te whare tipuna
Kō Hine-i-Kauia te whare kai
Kō Ngati Ruatakena te hapū
Ko Whakatohea toku iwi
Ko Keryn toku ingoa

I have very fond memories growing up in the Piako district as a child and I have loved raising my whanau in Morrinsville. I believe our small district has many great things to offer.

I are both highly involved in the sporting community and enjoy seeing children flourish within sports. I have had the pleasure to be involved in Basketball, Netball, Dragon Boating, Waka Ama, Touch rugby and Ballroom Dancing over my years.

I am honoured to be a teacher at Morrinsville Intermediate School as well as working alongside such a dedicated staff.

I look forward to meeting with you all.

Kia Ora

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 Waitakaruru


General Information

Kia Ora, my name is Shane Day; I have lived in Waikato for a big part of my life. I have two daughters, one attends Morrinsville College and the other in her first year at University. I am looking forward to the move to Mighty Morrinsville. I have been teaching for 20 years, previously teaching at Berkley for ten years.

A strength I bring to the classroom is building positive relationships with my students and developing the skills to manage their own behaviour and learning. My greatest joy as a teacher is watching students' confidence and self-belief grow. I encourage my students to discuss, share opinions and express their ideas. I take pride in creating a classroom environment where students are engaged in many learning opportunities while allowing students to flourish as individuals.

I look forward to meeting you all.

Tēnā koutou katoa
Ko Ingarangi me Kōtirana te whakapaparanga mai

Kei Kirikiriroa au e noho ana
Ko Bailee Foulds tōku ingoa

Kia ora, my name is Bailee!

I was born in Hastings but made the shift to the mighty Waikato when I was four years old. I then grew up in Te Aroha and later attended The University of Waikato where I studied a Bachelor of Teaching and a Bachelor of Arts. I have been a teacher at Morrinsville Intermediate since the beginning of 2018. Over the years I have had many different roles across the school, I love the variety that comes with my diverse position! I currently teach Robotics, release homeroom teachers and am the leader of the specialist team.
