Kia ora te whanau

Since Malcolm Cox’s retirement at the end of Term 2, the Raglan Area School Board of Trustees have been engaged in a principal recruitment process. This process included collecting the voice of our parent community, mana whenua, school staff and students and was overseen by a Principal recruitment specialist.

We are not only delighted but excited and proud to announce the appointment of Louisa Barham as the new Principal of Te Kura a Rohe o Whaingaroa.

Louisa is an experienced Principal with a solid reputation developed from successfully leading Peachgrove Intermediate School for the past 15 years. Louisa brings a full kete of education expertise, innovation and leadership including her experience as lead principal in the Hamilton Central Kahui Ako (Community of Learning) which includes Hamilton Boys and Hamilton Girls High Schools.

Louisa will start at the beginning of Term 1 2019. Further details regarding Louisa’s pōwhiri (welcome) will be made available in due course.
