From the Principal
Welcome back to a new term!
We are now into the second half of the year- it is hard to believe we are almost into August!
We have a number of changes taking place in the coming weeks, and we are farewelling a number of old staff, and welcoming some new additions to our team.
We said goodbye to Sheryl Farmer during last term, and we will shortly be welcoming Dylan Marshall who has been appointed to the dual role of Room 3 teacher and Puriri Team Leader. Dylan joins us from Opaheke School, but prior to this spent a number of years working in the Australian International School in Singapore, and before that at our neighbouring Bucklands Beach Intermediate.
We are also sad to farewell Tineke Oed from her role as Room 13 teacher in August. Tineke is leaving us after 2 and a half years at PMPS to pursue other employment opportunities, and we wish her well in the next step of her career. We are pleased to welcome Blair Fitzsimons to Pigeon Mountain as her replacement. Blair trained in Otago before heading overseas and enjoying a wide range of teaching experiences in international schools.
Our final farewell is to Carol MacGillivray who leaves us after 10 years working in various roles. Carol has spent the last 8 years as our Executive Officer, and has been appointed to a leadership position at Somerville Special School. We congratulate Carol on her new appointment, and know her expertise will be hard to replace!
