Hi, my name is Heather Foreman and I am so excited to be leading the wonderful Kowhai Āwhina here at Helensville School. I have lived in Helensville for the last 12 years, 8 of which I have been teaching here and I truly believe that we are so lucky to be surrounded by such a supportive community. The first years at school are so vital in a child’s education and I truly believe that the teachers at Helensville are the very best there is. I aim to create an environment in my class where children feel valued and have the greatest opportunities to be the very best they can be. I believe that we are all lifelong learners and should encourage children to embrace challenges while being free to be who they are. I have two beautiful children of my own and along with my husband, we love to hang out at Muriwai beach and spend time with our extended families.
