Fiona is our new bus driver. She has lived at the Lake forever and knows all about everything. She's pretty cool behind the wheel of the bus and makes sure we get to school on time. She lives in St Arnaud with her husband and he has a pretty cool job too. He looks after the Rotoiti Lodge Outdoor Education Centre.
We would also like to introduce Janine,who drives the van up the Kikiwa run.
Janine: Bus Driver
Dominique McCrostie : office manager / accounts
I’m the Office Manager at Lake Rotoiti School and am very excited to be a part of the school team. I was born and lived in South Africa until I was 11, which was when my family moved to New Zealand. I lived in Auckland until going to the University of Otago where I completed my accounting degree.
I have been involved in Lake Rotoiti School since my oldest started 10 years ago first as a parent and then as a Board of Trustees member. The kids are so fortunate to be able to experience a small rural school and I’m enjoying being a part of that.
When I’m not working you can often find me with my nose in a book as I love reading. I also enjoy snowboarding, watersports and making jewellery with beads.
Ina Biertuempfel : librarian
gary and kirsten dick : The best Cleaners ever!!
Brent: The best Maintenance Person ever!!
Brent is the person who sorts out the pool, mows the grass, picks up all the tyres we have played with, mends our fences and keeps our school looking as sharp as a tack. We love building huts with the grass Brent cuts (and with the tyres and wood). When he is not helping our school Brent is busy getting his house built or helping DOC.
