Yolandi Verwey

Classroom teacher for Room 15 and syndicate leader of Kaituna

I was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. I decided to join my family in New Zealand in 2012 and I never looked back. I did my first few years of teaching up in Whangaparaoa, Auckland. I then met my partner and made the move down to the Wairarapa to be with him and his three boys. I’ve been living in Martinborough for the last three years.

We are a sports mad family and in between watching cricket and rugby I still get time to play my own hockey and cricket. I enjoy getting out there on my bike and taking my dog for runs. Although I enjoy sports and being outdoors, I can easily spend a few hours watching Netflix.

I’m excited to be part of the MIS whānau and can’t wait to get stuck into the busy life of intermediate.
