Mr Peter Dobson


I teach in the Matairangi Hub on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. My class combines Year 4-6 students. I am one of the Deputy Principals, the Senior Syndicate Leader and I am jointly in charge of ICT. Katrina te Rito teaches in my room for 2 days a week on Thursday and Friday while I am on management release.

We  run a BYOD programme in the classroom so we are working with 1 to 1 devices using Google Apps for education. We do have some school devices available for students who do not have their own.

In my class we are developing an independent learning environment where students have a number of set tasks but can choose when they do these tasks. The students also have a number of "can do" tasks that are set once the "must do" tasks are completed. For me this is a really interesting time to be teaching as we try to prepare students for an exciting future.

I can be contacted by email at or through the school office (04) 939 2311.
