About Us

Talofa Lava, my name is Ta'apega and I am the Programme Lead here at Chisnallwood. I am also currently studying to become a Kaiako/primary school teacher. I love that my work and study make the perfect match where I get to collaborate with awesome young people every day! I've grown up in a big Samoan family so I would say I'm a big laugher, big food "connoisseur" and a big helper.

Chisnallwood is also lucky enough to have Lani on our staff team who loves all things sports and being a positive male role model. At Chisnallwood we cater to the intermediate age group so the possibilities and opportunities of having those aged 11-13 are endless. With this age group we form authentic, trusting and fun relationships based on inclusivity and empowering each other by giving things a go through different activities.

Chisnallwood is unique because we offer flexibility to be able to take on participant feedback and have a lot of self-directed play and chilling out! Especially after a long day at school with any resources you could need or imagine. Our site is based in a classroom with a twist of our own comfy space, a ping pong table, kitchenette, projector screen, endless board games and of course the whole school fields/courts and any of the 3 playgrounds to go wild on! Very handy when we are wanting to play basketball or have water balloon fights.

Overall Chissy is about having fun and catering to the needs that can challenge our mind or bodies to explore new skills.
