Having been involved with MIS since the 1990s I feel like this is my second home and I love it!! Born in Taranaki, growing up in the Hutt Valley, my husband Russell and I spent a year in Wharekopae, Gisborne before moving to Masterton for what we had thought would be one year, 30 years on and we now call the Wairarapa our home. Both our children attended MIS, our son Blair lives here in Masterton with his partner Anna and our daughter Samantha is living in Orange NSW. with her partner Andrew. We have one very beautiful granddaughter, Charlotte. I love working with and seeing the growth in our students here at school. An awesome school, staff and students.
