Meet Mr Blake

Welcome Students and Whanau,

I'm looking forward to another exciting year here at Reremoana School and teaching Year fives in Room 11 this year.  Here's a little about me...

I grew up in East Auckland and have been living in Manukau for about 8 years now. This is my fourth year of teaching and I'm enjoying the challenge and variety that teaching brings.  I especially enjoy teaching P.E. and Maths.

I live with my wife Praneeta, our Blue Heeler, Diesel and our cat, Astro. Praneeta and I are expecting our first baby in May of this year and we are both excited and a bit nervous about it.

I'm pretty good at falling off my mountain bike.

In my spare time I enjoy mountain biking, weight training and fishing.  I'm a big movie buff and I'm a bit of a news geek: I like to follow news and events from around the world.

My philosophy on teaching is to use assessment information to set learning goals that students understand and take ownership of.  I have high expectations of my students and I know they will meet them.

Parents, I encourage you to come and see me if you have any celebrations or concerns.  Alternatively, you can always contact me via email:

Looking forward to a productive year of learning,

Mr Blake
