Our Educator

Sam Michau

In 2016, Sam made the move to New Zealand from the UK, where she was a classroom teacher, lead science teacher, Director of Studies, then Headteacher of a prep school. Sam's own three children – now adults – live here in the North Island so the decision to make a major ‘life change’ was an exciting, positive one. Prior to moving to Hawkes Bay, Sam worked as a Deputy Principal at St George’s Prep School in Whanganui.

Sam loves her life here in New Zealand for so many reasons: the outdoor activities, the Kiwi optimism, the fact that it is OK to chat to strangers without them thinking you are a weirdo …. She thoroughly enjoys the culture, the fresh air and the feel-good factor of living in NZ!
