Adriaan Botha

Room 3 teacher

Kia ora koutou katoa. Originally from South Africa I started my teaching career in New Zealand in 2016. I have a passion for teaching and am very happy to be a part of the MIS whānau. I have a beautiful wife and 3 daughters. My wife, Daleen, a teacher at Gladstone School and daughters, Adelene, Leandri and Charlize, also love the Wairarapa.

I love sports and like to coach, umpire or watch different sport games. My favourite sports are Rugby, cricket, athletics and netball (especially when my daughter plays). The sport teams I support are The Crusaders, All Blacks and Black Caps (just to mention a few). We spend our free time exploring the beautiful country and love a good braai (barbeque) with family and friends.

My favourite subjects are Mathematics and PE. I also like Sciences and Biology. Motto: To be respectful to others and to enjoy life.
