14 Apr Welcome to New Deputy Principal
We are delighted to welcome new Deputy Principal, Kelly Bigwood, to the Pakuranga College whanau. Kelly will take up her new position from the start on Term 2.
“I have previously taught at Auckland Girls’ Grammar School and Mount Roskill Grammar where I held a number of roles including Dean, House Leader and Head of Department. A significant part of my career was teaching at the University of Auckland in their initial teacher education programmes and I held the position of Associate Director, Secondary Teacher Education before returning to the “chalk-face” in classrooms in 2016. For the last four years I have been Deputy Principal at Macleans College where my key area of responsibility has been to ensure high quality teaching and learning and the development of the professional learning programme in the school.
I am so looking forward to joining the Pakuranga College team in May. I have been connected with the College for some time as my two daughters and my niece have graduated from Pakuranga College. In addition, I have served on the Pakuranga College Board of Trustees since 2015. I am looking forward to seeing the school through a different lens as I now join the Senior Leadership Team.”
