Our People at Roseneath School

Leadership Team

Adelle Broadmore


I am thrilled to be here at Te Wai Hirere– Roseneath School. I was appointed as the Principal at Roseneath School in 2017. Prior to this I worked in schools in Lower Hutt and Wellington.

I feel very lucky to work in such a vibrant and inclusive school community with a dedicated and experienced team of teachers and support staff. The children at Roseneath are confident, curious and creative, and excited about their learning. They get the best of both worlds- a small and connected inner-city school with lots of opportunities within and beyond the school gates.

When I am away from school I spend my time on the amateur stage or trying to keep up with my beautiful baby boy.
