Kia ora koutou katoa, Ko Sean Crichton toku ingoa, Ko Wayne rāua ko Christine ōku mātua, Ko Parihaka te Māunga, Ko Hatea te Awa, Ko Ngatokumatawharua te Waka, Ko Tikipunga te Kura.

Kia ora and hello, My name is Sean Crichton and I am extremely grateful and proud to be the Head boy for 2019. I’m excited to get to know more about the school and students and teachers here, as well as help out when and where I can. I like basically everything to do with technology and drama, and love helping people out and seeing them grow, either through their own skills, or just as a person.

I was originally born in Auckland, and moved up to Whangarei at a early age. Because of this it took me a while to find my place in this new city, but i’m extremely thankful I found it here at Tikipunga; and i’m grateful I can start a new legacy here.

As I said before, I’m very interested in meeting all the new students and help whoever needs it throughout the school. If you see me walking around, please don’t be afraid to say “Hi!”

No reira tena koutou, tena koutou, tena koutou katoa.



Kia ora everyone,

My name is Ellen Bratty and I am Head girl for 2019.

I have lived in Whangarei for all my life and have attended Tikipunga High School for 7 years.   It gives me great pleasure to have the opportunity of leading our school and I can’t wait to see what this year brings.  I am highly involved in netball but I enjoy all sports as a whole.

I am proud to be a part of the Tikipunga High School whanau!  Without the influential staff and students we have here at Tiki, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.

The opportunities that are offered at our kura cannot be found anywhere else.

I am really looking forward to seeing all the old faces and welcoming all the new students into the big whanau we have here at Tiki.


Ngamanakitanga kia koutou katoa.
