Masterton Intermediate School

Michael O'Farrell

Room 10 teacher

I was born in Masterton but raised in rural Central Hawkes Bay. I moved to Palmerston North to study at Massey University to complete a teaching degree. I worked at Whanganui Intermediate School for four years with a career highlight of winning the Rugby SuperSport Banner against a very good MIS team…..Kia Ora Mr T!

I then transferred to Masterton Intermediate School in 2010. My family and I moved to the United Arab Emirates for six years where I was teaching at ADNOC Schools. We then moved to Brunei Darussalam for a further two years. At the start of 2019 we moved back to the beautiful Wairarapa and are hoping to settle here permanently.
