Office Team


Tāhuna is our office space. Translated as riverbank, this area and the team here, will support the learners and provide the infrastructure to keep the school running smoothly.

Trine Spence

Office Administrator

Trine comes to Ararira from West Melton School, where she spent 6 years as part of the office administration team with a focus on school finance, communications and being that ‘go to’ person.

Originally from Nottingham, Trine moved to New Zealand 19 years ago. Married to Paul, they have 2 boys who now both attend schools in Lincoln.

During the winter, Trine and Paul can be found supporting the boys with their winter activities (football and mountain biking) and in summer, will usually be found at Mitchells on the West Coast, relaxing with friends, boating and taking part in an ongoing Dept of Conservation initiative to make Te Kinga predator-free for our native birds.

Trine is really looking forward to meeting and welcoming our new families and students to Ararira Springs. Email Trine via
