Support Staff


Office Manager – Hannah Faed 

My family and I have lived in Wānaka for nearly ten years and we love it here. Over that time I have worked for our local council and local businesses in accounts and administrative roles, and I plan to bring my A game to our school.

When I’m not working I like to spend time with my family in the outdoors. When the weather is adverse you’ll find me reading books and watching movies, of which I am always happy to receive recommendations for.

Barista / Librarian / Learning assistant – Tammy Clegg 

My family moved from Australia a couple of years ago from the sand and surf to be by the mountains and snow. I previously was apart of a family-run Architectural Design Company.

I love to curl up with a good book and a coffee, (finding time to do this with four kids is a luxury 😀). I am excited to combine these two passions – the love of books and coffee in the cafe and library at Take Kārara.

Pop into the cafe for a friendly face and freshly made coffee.

Learning Assistant – Rosy Hogg

I moved to Wānaka 13 years ago. Previously, I was farming in South Otago where we brought up 3 daughters. I have 7 grandchildren and love spending time with them, whether it is bouncing on the trampoline or collecting cockles from the beach, it is always fun. Family is important to me. I have always enjoyed sport and the outdoors and find Wānaka the perfect location to participate in both. I have worked with many children with varied and diverse needs. It is a priority for me to develop positive relationships with the children to earn their trust so that I can support their learning.
