Principal Appointment Update

Please find below an update from Tony Thaugland, Board of Trustees Chair regarding the Principal appointment.

Hi Everyone,

I am just keeping everyone informed on behalf of the B.O.T regarding the appointment position for our new Principal. First of all thank you to the families who gave us feedback through the recent survey. These comments will be used by the board and the appointed consultant to help guide us in what we are looking for in our next Principal.

As mentioned we need a Consultant to guide us through this process. We have had the opportunity to talk with a few other local schools who have recently gone through the same process, after conversing with them the B.O.T have appointed Tony Pope as our consultant. Tony has worked with Kaharoa School in the past and was highly recommended by the other schools. Due to Tony’s work commitments it has been decided to utilize his services early next year where he can dedicate more of his time to us.

As I have already mentioned in a previous letter Rose Powley will be Acting Principal for the first term next year with Leanne Hale Acting Deputy Principal.

If anyone has questions regarding the Principal’s position please get in touch with me through the school email (tonyt@kaharoa.school.nz).

Nga Mihi

Tony Thaugland
