Principal's Welcome

Kia ora e te whānau
I am proud and honoured to be the Principal here at Vogeltown School.  I spent 11 years as Deputy Principal at Highlands Intermediate but it is great being at a primary school, which is where I started my teaching career.

I grew up in Hawera, where both my parents were teachers.  They continue to educate people with their wonderful Tawhiti Museum, which aims to 'bring history back to life' through modelling, dioramas and 'kid friendly' stories of yesteryear.  My wife is a teacher too, so I guess teaching is definitely in the blood!

I love our school vision of 'care for the land, care for the people and go forward', and I model this each day through interactions with kids, staff and community.  My door is always open if you want a chat, or come out and have a kick around with the kids at lunchtime on the field!

Vogeltown has a history of being a great school with great kids and awesome teachers.  This will continue while I am here and we will continue to do things the 'Vogeltown Way'.

Ka kite ano.
