Principal Resigns – A Message from the Board

Kia ora koutou

We have received the resignation of Gregor Fountain from his position as Paraparaumu College Principal.  We are grateful for his leadership at Paraparaumu College over the past five years and congratulate him on his appointment to his new position as Principal of Wellington College. Gregor will continue leading the school until the end of Term 1, 2018, and start his new position at the start of Term 2.

The Board will now start the process of appointing a new principal.  We are confident of attracting a strong field of applicants from throughout New Zealand and we are committed to appointing a visionary and community-focused leader for our school, to continue the great work which you are all part of here.   We will provide you with further information about this process when it is available.

We are looking forward to the next phase for Paraparaumu College.
