Mr Grant Congdon appointed as new Principal

30 July 2014


Monday 13 October.

Further to my update of 28 July I had a telephone conversation with the principal of Ashburton College and we have collectively agreed a start date for Mr Grant Congdon here at the college.

I am pleased to announce that Grant will start at the commencement of Term 4 2014,

I wish to give you an update on the appointment of a Principal at Horowhenua College. Our four shortlisted candidates visited the college and met with staff, student groups and prefects. The calibre of applicants made it very hard to separate the candidates. I am very pleased to be able to announce that Grant Congdon has accepted the position of Principal at Horowhenua College.

I wish to thank all staff and students who have helped and contributed to the process. I think the following extracts from one of our student’s responses summarises things so very well.

“I believe Mr Congdon would make a great principal for Horowhenua College. I think he has great intentions for the school and the students”

“I think Mr Congdon will try his hardest to adapt to the school”

“I believe students will like Mr Congdon more, as he is passionate to make positive changes and be a great leader for NUA”

We have yet to confirm a start date but are looking at Term 4 this year.
