At yesterday's powhiri we officially welcomed our new principal, Mrs Maria Neville-Foster, with our Year 9's and new students. Havelock North High School staff and students came to 'pass over' Mrs Neville-Foster in an emotional and spiritual ceremony.
In an interview later in the afternoon Mrs Neville-Foster said "I am really excited for the future of Sacred Heart College. It has got really good solid grounding here, fantastic tradition and I intend to maintain the traditional qualities of the school but I am very excited to progress the school into the future and I'm looking forward to having an influence on ensuring there's a quality teaching happening in the classrooms and that the students are getting quality education and that they are filled with virtue and knowledge in order to continue their journey as adults in this ever-changing environment."
