Tēnā koutou kātoa, I am Joshua Paranihi. In my spare time outside of kura, I love spending quality time with my four tamariki. I also love korikori-tinana (crossfit to be precise), beach days, enjoying the outdoors, gardening and when its time to wind down, a good movie or TV show with some snacks.
It is my passion to teach Te Ao Māori to our tamariki at Te Rōhutu Whio.
