Leadership Team

Shirley Winters

School Principal

Prior to being appointed principal at One Tree Point school I was Associate Principal at Beachlands School in Auckland. My previous role included leading school wide professional development in core curriculum and assessment. I am passionate about ensuring we all work together to ensure that the diverse needs of every single learner are met and our students are well prepared to be successful in their future. I absolutely love working at One Tree Point in such a supportive and collaborative learning community.

Michelle Reeve

Deputy Principal

I have been travelling to OTP for a few years from Mangawhai, where I live. I have been teaching for many years, starting in the vibrant city of Manukau where I crafted my skills. I lead the Tihirau (Year 4-6) team. I have never tired of teaching children and am as enthusiastic now as the day I started. It is a pleasure to be teaching in such a supportive, caring and pride filled school.

Leanne Robson

Assiatant Principal

I lead the Pararahi (Year 0-1) team. I live in One Tree Point with my husband and two sons. Teaching has always been my passion and I feel privileged to be part of shaping children’s education in the early years. What makes me most proud about our school is the caring and culturally aware community we have become. We achieve so much together and create fantastic memories for all involved.
