Deputy Principal  - Juniors - Adele Nummy - adelen@westernheights.school.nz

I have been married to Darren for 25 years and we have 3 awesome children. All 3 of our children were students at Western Heights and all have wonderful memories of their time spent here. Our eldest daughter, Lauren is 21 is teaching in Room 4 here at Western Heights.  Our second daughter, Taylor is 19 and works for Qantas.Our youngest, son Rhys, is aged 17, and in his first year of a Commerce and Science degree at Auckland University. 

I have been teaching in West Auckland for 28 years at all levels from Years 0-8. In the last 13 years, my practice has centred around the early years of education and I am passionate about providing children the best possible start to their 

journey of learning at school and beyond. This has seen me focus on building relationships with local pre-school providers and all parents to ensure the transition to school is successful and stress free!

I love my work but I also love to spend time with family. We have had some wonderful family holidays over the years, however most recently my husband and I enjoyed a trip to Europe! We have previously enjoyed the P&O cruises out of Auckland to a range Pacific Island countries with our family. Our family  enjoy the Northland beaches over the summer break, and have holidayed at Cable Bay in Doubtless Bay or Mangawhai for the past few years. Darren and I enjoy eating out and regularly take advantage of the Entertainment Book vouchers to grab a meal out!
