On this page I would like to introduce you to our staff at Roseneath School.

Luana Carroll

Adelle Broadmore

Principal – on maternity leave

Adelle was appointed as the Principal at Roseneath School in 2017. Prior to this she worked in schools in Lower Hutt and Wellington.

Adelle says she is lucky to work in such a vibrant and welcoming school community with a dedicated team of teachers and support staff. The children at Roseneath are confident 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.

In her spare time she loves the theatre, behind the scenes and on stage, travelling, and reading.
