Acting Principal Message
Our wonderful Principal Bu has left us for her dream job running the Education Programme at The Antarctic Centre in Christchurch. The place will certainly not be the same without her! In the meantime we have Cara Louise (Kiwi Nest teacher) stepping into the role of Acting Principal until Term 4. David Taylor will then be joining us as Acting Principal for the remainder of 2023.
We are currently advertising for a new Principal to start at the beginning of 2024 and hope to appoint early in Term 4.
I’m the principal at this lovely rural school plus I also get to teach a couple of days a week. I’ve been a principal at various small, rural schools for over 30 years now - purposefully choosing them as I’m passionate about teaching and learning in an environment where children, their families and the staff can develop strong partnerships and utilise the local environment as much as possible for learning.
Although I live in Christchurch City and not here in this gorgeous environment, I love the opportunities this school and area provide and hope to serve the children and their families to the best of my ability.
I’m blessed to be able to follow my passions of teaching science and technology on Fridays and to have the chance to work with the other staff and children as the timetable allows during the week.
Always happy for a chat and to find out more about your stories.
