EASTCLIFFE ON ORAKEI RETIREMENT VILLAGE THERE are moments in life you will never forget, like your first day at school. My first day as principal of How- ick Intermediate, on October 13, was a timely reminder of what that feels like. The two hours before the pow- hiri at 10am were spent getting to know the students. The significance of being pre- sented by Somerville Intermediate to my new family at Howick was overwhelming. The challenge to make Howick Intermediate once again a school of choice in the local community was one I fully embraced when I accepted the role. At the end of the powhiri, it pub- licly became mine. The stirring speeches and rous- ing kapa haka performances were followed by morning tea – a warm connection between Howick Inter- mediate and Somerville Interme- diate, where I had been deputy principal. It was another tangible moment filled with a sense of the huge potential for a community when people connect and collaborate together. The day was focused on the stu- dents. Some wanted to personally welcome and introduce themselves to me, while others shared what they were learning. One student in particular shared what would make a difference to her learning at Howick Intermediate. The school assembly gave me the opportunity to share my perspec- tive and news about a new school uniform. There was a very clear message about high expectations, a zero-tol- erance policy to bullying, respect and pride in our school. While the rosters and routines were still unfamiliar, I relished the familiar warm, friendly goodbyes at the end of a school day. Discussions with staff members about professional development, assessments and the report format followed. Then 6.30pm arrived and the board of trustees meeting com- menced. The meeting was char- acterised by significant decisions. These included a decision to adopt a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy to support learning and full support for a digital learning team trial next year. A decision to trial separate year 7 and year 8 teams was also made. The project to upgrade 20 class- rooms and make them modern learning environments was another item on the agenda. At times my mobile phone in the office would ring – family and friends wanting to know how the day had gone. By 10pm, I had filled the first page in the diary of my new life at Howick Intermediate. I will con- tinue to endeavour to make it the best possible story I can. New Howick Intermediate School principal Yolande Franke has had a warm welcome.
