Ms Alison Thwaites

Hi,

My name is Alison Thwaites and I teach Year 4 children in Room 7.

I have spent many years teaching at all levels of Primary education. Much of my teaching was in Rural schools, but for the last 10 years I have taught in city schools, mostly at Kilbirnie School! I am also a trained Reading Recovery Teacher.

I have also worked in Advertising,  Dairy Farming and running a 'Pub' ! 

I have lived and farmed with my husband in England back in the 'eighties' and have lived in South Wales for a 'rugby season' in the 'nineties'.😊

As most of my teaching life has been in rural schools,  I have a lot of experience working in small communities, and now I am fortunate to be working in this Kilbirnie community.  

My teaching strengths have always been in the Arts (performing!) and literacy!

Please contact me on alison@kilbirnie.school.nz or through the school office on (04) 939 2311 if you would like to volunteer to help with your time or skills at school this year.

Alison
