May 2019 Principal Appointment
“The Okaihau College Board of Trustees has been conducting a thorough and nation-wide process to recruit and appoint a new principal for the college since Alan Forgie’s retirement in late 2018. This was concluded over the weekend with shortlisted applicants being involved in a series of meetings and interviews with selected staff, the head students, and finally the whole board itself.
The board is proud to inform the college community that the fifth principal of Okaihau College, since its inception in 1973, will be our current acting principal, Mr Tom Davison.
Mr Davison impressed the board with his vision for the way forward for the college and the board is looking forward to seeing this vision become a reality. Mr Davison promotes inclusiveness and a shared drive for student success. There are many challenges ahead and we look forward to supporting Mr Davison as he tackles them. On behalf of the wider college community we congratulate him on his appointment.
There will be a formal welcoming ceremony in the near future, details of which will be notified soon. The Okaihau College Board of Trustees would like to sincerely thank all those who had input into the selection process.”
Mrs Janet Graham,
Board Chairperson
