Julie Sutherland

Deputy Principal

Martinborough School is an amazing school to work at and be part of the team.  I enjoy getting to know all of the children, their parents and families too, as well as all of the wonderful staff we have here.  I love my job and being part of such a great community of learning.  Currently, I am the longest serving staff member at Martinborough School.  I have taught every year level in some capacity or other; as a classroom teacher or doing extension or remedial work with groups.  This year I have a class of Year 1 and 2s in Room 3.

I love reading and read many different genre of books however probably tend towards crime as a favourite for personal reading.  My favourite movies are probably Rom Coms however after living for years in an all-male household, three sons and a husband, I have been known to enjoy the action genre too!

The most interesting places I have been are definitely all of the wonderful places I have seen within our country, a place I am passionate about, which I have extensively explored during my childhood through to now.  My next steps are to look at exploring further afield.

My passion is for my family, my husband, my 3 sons, their partners and my wonderful little grand-daughter Kendyll whom I treasure.  I am really looking forward to the arrival of a new grandson in September, although he will be living in Christchurch, so I am sure that I will be venturing down south regularly.
