General Information

Kia Ora, my name is Sacha Marnoch.

I am a primary school teacher by day, with a passion for singing and performing in my own time. I have a huge passion for sharing my musical abilities, with all my tamariki. I enjoy teaching about singing, songwriting and encouraging kids to find their musical talent within. I believe this often builds a lot of confidence.

I am excited to be starting a new chapter, in my teaching journey, at Cambridge Primary School. The children and the staff are very friendly, caring and welcoming. I am in the Rutherford Syndicate.

General Information

Kia ora, my name is Anna O'Brien and I am thrilled to be teaching Room 2 in the Rutherford's Syndicate. I am excited to begin my teaching journey here at Cambridge Primary School.

This year Room 2 children are fortunate to have the support of both Lisa Smith and I. We enjoy direct and open communication to ensure the classroom runs smoothly for our learners. I look forward to helping our students grow and develop throughout the year.

In my spare time I love spending time with my young family and our friends, getting into the bush to run and tackling family adventures. Before training as a teacher, I was a Chartered Accountant, working in New Zealand and the UK.

General Information

I am currently teaching a year 5/6 class in Rutherford Syndicate.

I have held management positions in the past but decided that I enjoy being in the classroom best.

I love being with the children, introducing them to new things and watching their excitement as they discover what a wonderful world we live in.

I enjoy all subjects but my passions would be art and maths.

Out of school I enjoy, travelling, fishing, painting and cake decorating.
Every year I take on a new project, eg. last year it was metal jewellery making and at present it's gully restoration.

Next year, who knows?
