Szia! I’m Olivia Balogh and I feel so lucky to join the amazing Rosebank whānau this year. I’m taking on a new role leading the amazing Whau team and teaching a vibrant class of year 0/1s in Room 3. I have felt so welcomed at Rosebank by the staff, students and families and I am excited about what is ahead. My passion in teaching is to create a safe place where students aren’t afraid to make mistakes and take risks so that they can be successful, life-long learners who are proud of who they are.
Kia Ora! My name is Gidget Mendonça and I teach the lovely year 0/1 in Room 1. My hobbies are cooking, art & craft and sewing. I love the diversity of cultures at Rosebank school and I have enjoyed my time here. My joy comes in watching the 5 year olds grow and learn and actively participate in all activities . I cater to the needs of my students and strive to bring out the best in them.
Talofa! I’m Amanda Young. Rosebank School is a great school with such a unique culture and I feel so fortunate to be able to teach here for yet another year. This year I will be teaching some of our lovely year 1 students in Room 4! I am very excited to work with this year level and help them to achieve things that they can be proud of. In my classroom I want my students to know that it is ok to make mistakes because this is how we learn best. This year is going to be such a good year filled with lots of fun learning. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors, reading, listening to live music and spending time with friends and family.

This is my first year teaching at Rosebank School and what an honor it is to be apart of a vibrant community of learners and staff. You can find me in Room 7 with my talented wonderful class of Year 2.
