Viv Gribben

I tipu ake au i raro i te maunga ko Te-Heru-Kahukura,
I te taha o Waimokihi,
I te mana o Ngāi Tahu Whānui,
Nō Ōtautahi ahau.
Ko Viv Gribben tōku ingoa.

Kia ora Whānau, I’m Viv and I have spent nearly my whole life living in Christchurch, under Sugarloaf and next to the Waimokihi stream. I am incredibly excited to be part of the Te Rōhutu Whio team and know that together we are creating a space and place where the magic happens. I have been a kaiako for three years and I love creating a safe environment where tamariki can be their best self, knowing they are loved, cared for, and nurtured. My favourite thing in the world is my whānau. I live with my husband and our twin daughters Zoe and Alisia. We also have a puppy named Gracie, who is an absolute princess and our third baby. I have lots of nieces and nephews and love spending time with them as often as I can. Music, singing, dancing, and writing are all things that bring me joy and you can often find me perched at the piano, practising my guitar, or typing up a new story. I look forward to finding out more about our amazing school whānau and getting to know your tamariki.
