Mr Maguire was farewelled from Burnside High School last week and has taken up his new position with The Ministry of Education in Wellington this week. We thank him for his contribution to our school and wish him well in his new position.
The Board of Trustees are currently in the process of recruiting and appointing a new principal with the expectation that they would start at the beginning of the 2015 school year.
In the meantime, I will be the Principal and Mrs Ussher will step up in to the Second Principal's role but she will retain her association with West Division.
Mr Robertson, our Assistant Principal, will become the Divisional Principal for Senior Division for the remainder of the year although I will still maintain a close contact with Year 13 students.
We, as well as Mr Grocott in North Division and Mr Barnett in South Division, are happy to be contacted if you have any questions or concerns.
Regards, Sandra Sidaway, Acting Principal
