Trent Rosewarne

Sports Learning Assistant

About Me

Kia Ora, my name is Trent Rosewarne and I run the sports here at Manurewa West. This is my second year coaching here at this wonderful school. I was born and raised here in South Auckland and I am currently in my 4th year of sport coaching, ranging through multiple ages (5-13) and a wide range of schools around the South Auckland region. I enjoy helping the students grow and excel in all the different areas of sport. In my spare time I enjoy playing sports, spending time with family, friends and my border collie. I look forward to a great year here at Manurewa West Primary School.
