Kia ora Devon Intermediate Te Kura o Takawaenga o Ngāmotu whānau and community. My name is Dian Brookes and I am one of the Deputy Principals at our wonderful kura. I have a long connection with Devon as a student, child of a teacher, a teacher and parent of students.
I began my teaching journey at Devon in May 2008 and have yet to go anywhere else. Over my time here I have held a multitude of positions and roles during my tenure, including being the Digital Technologies teacher for two years, being a Team Leader for 4 years, worked with student debating teams, been the hockey coach – more like manager – and a classroom teacher throughout my time. This has allowed me to get to know the tamariki and the wider Devon community in many different ways.
I look forward to continuing my learning and development as an educator and a school leader with the amazing staff and students we have at Devon over the coming years. I encourage you to get in contact if you have questions and to support your tamariki through this exciting stage in their educational and personal development alongside us.
Mrs Dian Brookes
