New Principal at Onehunga Primary School
The Board of Trustees is delighted to announce the appointment of Viki Holley as our new Principal.
Viki has a strong leadership background and is well known in Auckland educational circles through her current role as establishment Principal of Reremoana School. Viki brings to the role twelve years of experience as a Principal in two very successful and high achieving schools in Auckland and Papamoa.
Viki is a passionate and dynamic leader who is driven by the desire to achieve the best possible outcomes for students. This is grounded in her belief that for everyone to grow to their full potential we must build a trusting, collaborative community that balances the social, cultural and emotional needs of all.
Throughout the recruitment process the Board was impressed by Viki’s ability to portray herself as an inspiring educator with a clear vision and strategic approach to her work. Viki also impressed us by her acknowledgement that excellent student outcomes are achieved through the collective efforts and development of students, staff, Board of Trustees, whanau/families, and community, who work together to formulate a strategic direction for the school. Viki is keen to build on the firm platform established over the past thirteen years with Mavis at the helm, and to lead us on a very exciting and strategic journey.
Viki is married to John who is currently on a UN Deployment in Sudan, returning in March 2014. Between them they have two adult children, Megan and Patrick, and Isabella aged five.
Viki starts work at Onehunga Primary School on 28 January 2014. We are currently working through a plan to formally welcome her to Onehunga Primary School with a Powhiri on Monday 16th December at 10am. Please join us in welcoming her to Onehunga Primary School.
I would also like to take the opportunity to thank you for your continued support of the Board, and hard work you continue to do for our school community.
