Robina Wilson - Years 5/6
The thing I love teaching at Mataura is the lovely feel of the school. It is very much a community school sitting in the heart of Mataura. Generations have attended here and the kids feel a real sense of belonging. I love that, to me it embodies all things good about being a connected Southlander. However I love how accepting and welcoming our kids are to new kids as well.
