Kia ora, all!

Well, here we are at the start of 2011. It's probably time I introduced myself. My name is Mike Harris. I have come to beautiful Pt England from Australia and will be the teacher in Room 19 for 2011. I am excited to be one of the newest members of the Pt England whanau.

That's me on the right. Well, to be truthful, that was me a 'few' years ago and I do look a little different these day (you'll especially notice less hair!). I still enjoy riding bikes and love to be outdoors - tramping, surfing, kayaking, walking our dogs, etc - whenever I can be.
I am married to a wonderful lady and have two adult children who live back in Oz.

Well that'll do for now, see you Monday, Mr H.


  1. Welcome to Pt England Mr Harris. It has been fantastic to get to know you as you have been working hard to get ready to welcome Room 19 over the past weeks. We always give Ozzie teachers an extra warm welcome here - especially when sport is on :)
    Have a great day tomorrow.
