Inspiring active learners and leaders who make a difference

Sarah Cattell

Deputy Principal

Throughout my career as an educator, I’ve had the privilege of teaching in diverse educational settings across New Zealand, Australia, and Singapore. With experience spanning from Year 1 to Year 8, I’ve assumed various leadership roles, providing me with a well-rounded perspective on education.

I am thrilled to be joining the Pinehill team as Deputy Principal, commencing in 2024. I am eager to contribute to the school’s ethos of excellence and foster a supportive learning environment.

I am passionate about collaborating with teachers to nurture and empower our ākonga, fostering their growth and enabling them to reach their fullest potential.


In my personal time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading, and sport – when I’m not taking my daughter to all of her sports!

I am enthusiastic about establishing meaningful connections within the Pinehill community. Please feel free to reach out and say hello—I look forward to meeting you all!
