Thank you and farewell to the St. Mary’s College Community.
For almost 17 years I have been at St. Mary’s College after being in the United States on a Cross-country and Athletics Scholarship, further study and work.
Thank you for your support through the many events that I have been involved in while I have been at SMC – Year 10 Camp, Spirit of Adventure, NCEA, Athletics Days, Football, Year 9 Water Safety Days, Japan and Europe Tours, Cross-country, Athletics, Swimming sports and also the fantastic support received as a Dean for 6 years. I have valued your input throughout.
I am taking up a role as a National Assessment Moderator at NZQA and I look forward to working with teachers, and assisting the nation to keep standards high as well as learning along the way.
I began my journey to become a teacher by attending the United States on a Cross-country and Athletics Scholarship. Therefore, in alignment with my beginnings I have donated a Student Athlete of the Year Award for Senior Prizegiving. The criteria is based on Athletic and Academic accomplishments as well as attendance.
Many thanks and farewell,
HOD Physical Education
