Columnists of the Year (3)

A ‘Teacher for All (Good) Reasons’

By Alan Tristram

Another of our columnists you should get to know is Waikanae School teacher Peter Corlett.

He’s among the best friends of KIN.

Not only an educator, he’s also a talented photographer, marriage and funeral celebrant, and he fills the vital post of president of the Kapiti Branch of the the NZEI (the primary teachers’ union).

Peter is  married to Moira , a councillor at Living Well Counselling Centre, and they live at Paraparaumu Beach. They have four children, and five grandchildren.

Like many of our talented people on the Coast, he comes from the Deep South (he was born  in Dunedin).

He’s lived in Kapiti for 20 years — and loves being here!

Peter describes himself this way: A keen photographer, sometime dancer,  sometime wood carver (making garden art ), teacher at the the Waikanae Primary School; and an ICT lead teacher.

We’ll feature another of his columns soon. If you are interested in education — and who isn’t — you’ll be fascinated by his insights.
