On Thursday 3rd February a small group of Rowandale School Leaders travelled over to Birkdale School on the North Shore to participate in the Powhiri of their new principal Mrs Natasha Teinakore. Mrs Teinakore was up until last year one of Rowandale Schools Assistant Principals and won this position at the end of 2021. We are so proud of her and she will be a strength and an asset for the school and community of Birkdale. The Powhiri was beautifully led by school and community leaders and involved a large amount of input from the students. Another amazing Pasifika principal influencing and implementing positive change for school communities in Aotearoa NZ.
