Kia ora koutou katoa!
I am team leader for Purapura Waka this year, supported by a wonderful team of mana wahine. I am Matua Richie and I enjoy teaching here at Western Heights Primary School. I love teaching your children and I feel very privileged to do so. My passion is teaching Physical Education and Literacy. I am proud to co-coach our Rugby and Rugby League teams with Matua Stacey.
In the weekends and holidays, I like to chill-out at home with my beautiful wife Rebecca, twin boys Kaya & Keanu, my darling little girl Aria, and one on the way.
