The first person you’re likely to meet when you arrive at Shotover is Lisa Cooke, our Front Line Extraordinaire. She is joined in the office by Trineka Newton (Executive Officer/PA), Jackie Rule (Finance Wizard) and David White (Building & Grounds Keeper). 



Hi, my name is Lisa Cooke. I moved to Queenstown from Methven in mid-Canterbury in January 2017 with my husband Stu, sons Ethan (19) and Reilly (18), and Cookie the dog.

In Methven, I worked for nearly six years at Mount Hutt College, and before that I worked in the Acute Medical Assessment Unit attached to the Emergency Department at Christchurch Hospital and DB Breweries.

I am super excited to be working at Shotover Primary School. We love the amazing outdoors and have been enjoying all that Queenstown has to offer.
