Sports Co-ordinator

Malo lelei, I’m Tony Alatini, newly appointed Sports Co-ordinator. I hail from a big Tongan family as does my Samoan wife. I am easy going and enjoy having a laugh with family and friends.
Born in Tonga but have lived in Otara, South Auckland since 1982. I am very proud of growing up in South Auckland! I have had the experience to work and live overseas mainly in Australia and Europe.
I’ve worked in schools across Ireland introducing and promoting rugby as a Rugby Development Officer and also have worked for Oranga Tamariki – working with children since 2010.
I am a recent graduate in Bachelor of Applied Sports and Exercise Science and a Certificate in Cross-Cultural Supervision.
I look forward to bringing my energy and positivity to De La Salle and to contribute with the skills and experience I have gathered over the years working with children, youth and people of diverse backgrounds both overseas and in New Zealand.
