Pokeno School

Stephanie Lee


Deputy Principal



General Information

I have a Diploma of Teaching and a Bachelor of Education from the University of Waikato. I initially began my teaching degree in the Secondary programme which would have seen me graduate with a double degree in Science and Education. However, when I saw the enthusiasm and excitement for learning in my friends who were enrolled in the Primary degree I asked to be transferred – it was absolutely the right decision. I have thoroughly enjoyed my 20 years teaching in Franklin primary schools - especially Pokeno.

I am really looking forward to the journey of growing our school as our community itself grows.

What is the most important thing in the world?
It is people! It is people! It is people!
