Te Totara Primary School - Growing and Learning Together

Bridie Carr-Neil


Team Leader, Teacher in Matawhero 4



General Information

Kia ora, my name is Mrs Bridie Carr-Neil.

I am looking forward to working with the fabulous Matawhero team and supporting your children as they transition to school and begin their journey as life long learners.

I enjoy the inquisitive nature of young children and how they are excited about the little things in life.

I began teaching in 2003, teaching mainly in the junior end at country schools. Before I joined Te Totara Primary in 2011, I taught Year 0-2 at Kaihere Primary School and was also the Reading Recovery teacher.

I am married to Zane, an engineer, and we have two children, Keira aged 9 and Jackson aged 11. As a family we enjoy renovating our home, establishing gardens, and working on our few acres. In our spare time we also enjoy camping and going to the beach.
