Kia ora koutou,

I’m Claire Martin, one of 2 Deputy Principals at UHS. My passion is New Entrants and starting school, so I’m often found in the Junior half of the school. I usually start a New Entrant class in the second half of the year, and love being with our newest tamariki and their whanau. I have a passion for all books(including picture), photography and collecting teddy bears. In winter I’m often found on the football field supporting my youngest son, while still having no idea about “offside”!

I’m married to Jon, who is with the NZDF, and we have 3 adult children and 3 cats. We now consider ourselves real Wellingtonians, having lived away from Auckland for 20+ years!

Teaching is an amazing job which brings constant surprises and rewards. I love seeing children grow in confidence as they progress through school. You can contact me at
