From the Principal
Welcome to Papakura High School. It is a real pleasure for me to be here at Papakura High School and I have had a very positive start. I was asked to come here and take leave from my previous position as the Principal of Lynfield College in Mt Roskill / Blockhouse Bay. I have been the Principal there for 13 years and during that time learnt a great deal about leadership and the functioning of secondary schools.
At Papakura High School we are working alongside similar schools throughout Auckland and with the University of Auckland to ensure that our students leave with the best possible qualifications and go on to further study once they leave school. Parents and caregivers also have an important part to play in ensuring the best for all students.
I look forward to working with the Papakura High School students, staff and community for the rest of this year while a new Principal is selected. There are many challenges and opportunities available to us and I look forward to providing the best educational experience that I can for your children and ensuring that the new Principal will have a smooth transition into leading this school.
At this time I have great pleasure in introducing to you our newly appointed Deputy Principal, Kelly Peterson who has come to us from Aorere College.
We have a lot on our school calendar for Term 4 and we look forward to sharing these events with you.
