A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL:
Kia ora koutou!
I am very excited to be appointed the Foundation Principal for Orewa North School and working with the Establishment Board next year to build the learning foundations on which the school will be based. Previously, I was the Principal of AGE School in Takapuna where we have developed a curriculum which gives equal weight to both wellbeing and academic progress.
Born and bred on the North Shore, I am currently living in Hillcrest with my family. My partner Theresa and I have two children, Alana who is 11 and attends Northcote Intermediate School and Harry who is 7 and attends Willow Park School.
When I am not at school, I usually spend my time following our children’s sporting pursuits. Alana is a very keen water polo player for both her school and North Harbour, Harry loves basketball, rugby and ninjitsu, while both are members of Red Beach Surf Club. We spend a lot of time at the Red Beach Surf Club as I have helped to coach Alana’s group since she was 7 and we have many friends involved in the club.
I am a principal that is open, enthusiastic, future focused and keeps learners at the centre of all that I do and will operate with that in mind at all times. I am excited to meet the community over the coming months and working with you all while we prepare to open our doors.
