New Principal search update 25 June

Just an update that planning of the process of appointing a new principal is well underway and the Board has engaged Roween Higgie of the Education Group to assist.  Roween is a former Principal to both Bayfield and Remuera Primary Schools.  She understands the dynamics of running high decile schools and has a strong track record of supporting school Boards, both with respect to Principal appointment as well as building strong governance practices.  The Education Group has been involved in the appointment of over 70 principals since 2013.

So far an appointment process timetable has been set, with an appointment expected by the second week of term 4.  The whole Board will be meeting with Teachers and support staff Monday 29 June to give a further briefing on the timeline and process.  Roween will then be meeting with them later that day to obtain feedback as to what they would like from a new Principal for VAS.

This will be followed that week with a survey for you, the parents.  Ilona Lumborg will also be engaging with selected student groups on what VAS means to them and what they would like to see from a new Principal.  We do urge you to take part in the survey.  More details will follow.
