Kia ora, I’m Robyn.
I have recently been employed by Ngāi Tahu to fulfill the Te Rūnanga o Makaawhio Kaitoko position. I will be working alongside the Mātauranga Pou (Education Portfolio) to lift educational outcomes for Kāti Mahaki. This role is 20 hours per week and I also work two days a week at Grey Main School for Term 1.
I am excited to have moved from Kaikōura to the beautiful West Coast. My dog Jed and I have started investigating the gorgeous bush walks and sunsets.
I am currently living in Kaiata, Greymouth and enjoy my drive down to the Hokitika office of Te Rūnanga o Makaawhio.
I can be contacted at the Office 03 7557885, email Robyn.McConchie@ngaitahu.iwi.nz and 027 6353436.
