Day 51 February 20th 2016

The Great Lake Relay is an annual event in Taupo in which teams of between 10 and 18 people run 155 km  around Lake Taupo. This is the third time I have been part of a team.  Each time there are some core people so there is some familiarity but it is the different faces that make each iteration so unique and enjoyable.  Here is this year’s team about to set off at 2am.


Whereas in previous years we have made it round in well under the allocated 16hrs, this year we were sailing close.  However, everyone pulled together and gave of their best. It was a real team effort and the final few minutes certainly got the adrenalin flowing. Ten exhausted but elated team members with a great sense of achievement so I have cheated and also included the photo at the end of the race.

Teacher of Languages first and foremost but passionate about learning and teaching. I have been learning how to blend technology into my teaching for the last twenty years and worked for seven years supporting colleagues to build their skills and confidence using digital technologies as part of their teaching and learning. In 2014 I was honoured to be awarded an eFellowship from Core Education which was a challenging and fun year. I am now a Connected Learning Advisor with Core Education. In that role I support school leaders in their planning and implementation of technology. I love being in the outdoors and spend as much of my time as I can in the bush, by the ocean and on mountains.
