Charné Cloete

Ruma Iwa, Year 6/7

Kia Ora, my name is Charne Cloete, and I joined Don Buck Primary School in 2023 as a teacher aide. This year I am joining the team as a teacher. I am excited to be a part of the team and connecting with you all!

What do you enjoy most about working at our school?

The students I work with daily and seeing them grow. I love the great energy of the team at Don Buck School. The fantastic program for students is just incredible! I absolutely love the happy faces of our tamariki at school.

How do you keep your students engaged and motivated in learning?

Making them feel happy and knowing that they belong! I set clear expectations and objectives for my students, while making learning enjoyable. I want them to know that they can achieve anything. It is important to establish relationships with my students to achieve success.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I have a family with two children that keeps me on my toes but I am an absolute fan of the outdoors. Whether it’s the beach, hiking, or playing at the park with my little ones.
