About Me

Occupational therapist with 20 years' experience working in different children's services around Auckland. Worked at Wilson School since 2016. I enjoy post-graduate study, looking at ways to integrate good research to everyday practice. Out of school, I like cycling, tramping, any activity on or in water, and time with my family.

Physiotherapist

About Me

I have worked as a physiotherapist for 15 years and can honestly say this is my most challenging but rewarding role to date. Helping our students with physical disabilities move from a restricted environment to a more inclusive lifestyle is my main motivation. It amazes me what our students can achieve physically when given the right equipment, motivation, and environment. Out of school, I enjoy sailing, playing football and spending time with my wife and three kids.

I have worked as a Physiotherapist in South Africa in a variety of settings and in New Zealand with children in the community.

Sudha Packirisamy

Speech Language Therapist

About Me

Kia ora koutou. My name is Sudha. I am a speech-language therapist based at Wilson School. Born in Singapore, I moved to New Zealand in 2005 to pursue tertiary education and have since made NZ my home. I became a qualified speech-language therapist in 2016 and started my career at Arohanui Special School. I love working with children and young adults alongside teachers and therapists to enable and empower them to become excellent communicators. Outside of work, I am a busy mum to a toddler and a fur child. I enjoy cooking, reading and going on walks with my family. I look forward to meeting you all.

Occupational Therapist

About Me

I am a South African trained Occupational Therapist with many years' experience working with children in both school and private practice settings. I structure my therapy around the belief that students learn best through activities that are meaningful, fun and motivating. My number one goal as an OT is to enable students to reach their full potential and get the most out of life. Outside of school, I enjoy walking on the beach and spending time with my lovely family and friends.
