Welcome to Pigeon Mountain Primary School
Welcome to our new principal Ian Dickinson. Ian comes to us from our neighbouring school Bucklands Beach Intermediate.
With an educational career spanning over 20 years in both New Zealand and the United Kingdom, Ian has had over 12 years’ experience in senior school leadership. He is well known for his professionalism, passion for teaching and the positivity he brings to the school environment.
In his past role as deputy principal of BBI, Ian experienced a range of key roles and responsibilities, including pastoral care, ePortfolio Development, ICT infrastructure, and curriculum leadership. He also guided the school to World School Authorisation in 2012, which required skilled leadership impacting on school philosophy, teacher practice and community involvement.
Ian describes himself as having a positive approach to life, and looks forward to bringing a blend of both energy and experience to the principal’s role. He has spent the majority of his career working in the equivalent of years 1-6 schooling and relishes the prospect of being back in a contributing school environment.
