To Koopu Maania House Leaders

Caitlin Cotter - House Prefect

Hi, I’m Caitlin Cotter, and I’m honoured to be one of the Te Koopu Maania prefects for 2024! I have a fiercely competitive and driven mindset and strive for academic and sporting excellence. I aim to be open and someone students can come and talk to at any time. As a prefect of our house, I will do my utmost to ignite in each of our TKM students the sense of pride that I carry for our house spirit. We are a house to be proud of, and I hope that every student enjoys being a part of and participating in all our house events. This year, I want everyone to try their best so that TKM takes away the house shield at the end of the year, making history as the first year that Te Koopu Maania wins!

Sahara Taane - House Prefect

I aim to be an approachable and friendly face around the school for any student to come and talk to or ask for help.

Te Koopu Maania is a very supportive and positive house with very extremely talented students apart of it. Bringing our house closer as we spend house days competing and supporting our fellow house members.

Niamh Brennan - House Captain

Kia Ora!

My name is Niamh, and I am one of Te Koopu Maania’s house leaders for 2024. I’m stoked to be representing my house and the leadership team. I love playing sports, so this makes my part in the leadership team enjoyable as I get people involved in all our house activities. I like to find ways through these events to ensure that everyone feels involved.

I am approachable and aim to be there for the people in my house supporting in anyway I can. Te Koopu Maania has set a high standard for house spirits last year and I would love to build on that this year. I am excited for the year to come as we are a great community and have fantastic group of leaders to work with.

Annabel Goodrich - House Captain

Kia Ora Annabel Goodrich tōku ingoa. I have the privilege of being one of Te Koopu Maania's House Captains for 2024.

Te Koopu Maania is about stepping out of our comfort zones and embracing challenges, so this year, our main focus is to create a spark within TKM, encouraging others to unlock their full potential. Through leading by example and encouraging people to participate and give things a go, we hope to inspire others to push their boundaries and strive for excellence.

As a leadership group we are passionate about giving everyone a voice and making everyone feel valued. I hope to be a dependable presence, ready to offer support in all situations, and I aim to be an understanding captain who can successfully support and guide the people of Te Koopu Maania. This year we have such a strong leadership team, and it is our year to win it all!
