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 grew up in the King Country and attended a very small rural school. We lived on a sheep and beef farm before moving to Hamilton.

My husband is an engineer and we have two children, Keira and Jackson. As a family we enjoy working on our gardens and maintaining our lifestyle block. In our spare time we also enjoy snowboarding, camping, the beach, and travelling.

I began teaching in 2003 and spent many years working at country schools where I also did my Reading Recovery training.

In 2011 I came to Te Totara Primary after starting our family.

I am looking forward to working with the fabulous Matawhero Team as we support your children in their transition to school.

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