Big wide open skies, and the rolling Hokonuis…Grandma, Grandad and the rest of the family down the road for our little girl… the Waimea and the Otamita for my husband to go fishing… and a Catholic College with a great reputation nationally… why wouldn’t I have applied for the position of Assistant Principal at St Peter’s when I saw the advert! The process of moving to Gore began for me in January and here I finally am in May. Five days into the job, I’m very happy to be at St Peter’s. I’ve received a warm welcome and all seems to be going well. I trust that my knowledge in English, History and Religious Education as well as my educational philosophy will enrich my new learning community and I’m really looking forward to working with all the students, staff, parents and the wider community in my new hometown.
