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.
