Senior Management“What the teacher is, is more important than what he teaches.”
― Karl A. Menninger

What makes a good school great? The People. He tangata, He tangata, He tangata

During your son’s intermediate and high school life, he will spend over 8000 hours being educated, mentored and inspired by teachers. Our focus is on recruiting and providing to our parent base the very best educators possible. With the requirements of a 21st Century learning environment and the importance of good supportive role models to develop character, we are proud to be a school that focuses in these areas.

“…It is ironic I have spent a lot of my life bringing up 3 lovely daughters; a lawyer, an artist and a human rights researcher and now I have 600 men to lead and manage!……..I have strong social justice values and it is an absolute privilege to be working with the hearts and minds of young men who will go out to make a difference in the world…””

Steve Hart (Deputy Principal/Head of Sport)
“….I have three boys (and one daughter) and I am passionate about boys’ education and sport…..for me it is all about character and ensuring that we do our best in turning boys into the right type of man…..”

Brendan Biggs (Deputy Principal)
“….I love the opportunity for diversity and creativity in education ….. I am committed to excellence and also giving boys opportunities and pathways that they otherwise may not have had….”

Paul Donnelly (Deputy Principal)
“…the boys say I am a big man with a big heart! I love technology and I can see a huge opportunity for it in education…..I am committed to pushing the learning boundaries for all our students……”

Hamish McCombie (Business Manager)
“…I am committed to doing my part in supporting the needs of our teachers and students ….schools are far more than educational institutes, they provide a sense of belonging and leave an imprint in a young person’s life forever….”
