This year we have departed with past tradition and appointed our Student Leadership team earlier in the year. This was so that they could be fully involved in the set-up of the Senior Campus and hence be part of the creation of the campus culture.
This year the interview panel consisted of myself, Tracey Dykstra, Principal Senior College, and Paul Daley, Ex-Principal of Takapuna Grammar School and Sancta Maria College. Paul has been a senior leader in the Secondary Principals’ Association of New Zealand, is a consultant to the education sector, carries out special character reviews for the Catholic schools, and is a highly respected leader in Secondary Education.
We recognised that the selection was more challenging this year due to students from two schools being involved and deserving equal and fair opportunity. The panel was of a single mind that the best team of leaders would be chosen irrespective of the school that they attended, and at the end of the day we were unanimous in our decision.
Please join me in congratulating:
|Head Girl||Tessa Barker|
|Head Boy||Jack Carden|
|Deputy Head Girl||Maia Szecket|
|Deputy Head Boy||Travis Manning|
This is an exciting and energetic team of experienced leaders, all of whom expressed a passion for wanting to create something special with the new campus, and lead across the whole school.
