Kate’s positivity is infectious, she is passionate about what she does and what she does is great. Kate directed a group of senior students who gained the top mark in New Zealand (98%) in a Trinity Grade 8 exam.
As a child… she did jobs for her older brother and sister and they paid her in Monopoly money! Little did she know, she couldn’t cash it in for k-bars.
If Holly was a superhero… she’d be Elastigirl!
You would never have guessed... but in her "spare time", Krystel works as a dentist.
Georgie is a trained actor, teacher and is currently directing and creating her first professional production in the Auckland Fringe Festival. She has her Grade 8 Trinity qualifications in both Speech and Drama and Musical Theatre.

My passion is photography so in my spare time(hmm… what’s that?), I am starting to build my business, mainly focusing on multi generational family portraits which is so exciting as my dream is starting to unfold. If I was a superhero, I would be Iron(wo)man - to be able to fly around would just be awesome!
