Kia Ora! Ko Deane McKay tooku ingoa. No Te Whanganui a Tara ahau.  I have joined the Sport Waikato team after spending the last 17 years teaching and leading in Primary schools in London, Northern Territory of Australia and in the Wellington region. I have recently taken on the new role as the Healthy Active Learning Primary Sector Manager. I am excited to have the opportunity to contribute to ‘Moving Waikato’ as I work with the team to be influencers in the primary school setting. 

I love being active and have enjoyed a variety of sporting pursuits throughout my life.  I’m particularly passionate about triathlon and endurance events.  I am also into another lesser-known sport called ‘sport stacking’, where you stack and unstack a set of 12 specially designed cups in specific sequences as fast as you can.
