The Board of Trustees and the senior leadership team, have been working through the process of appointing a new Deputy Principal  This vacancy was created by the appointment of Dominic Killalea as Principal.  After a  rigorous interview process, including student panel, we are pleased to announce that Karen Spencer has been appointed.

Karen has extensive experience in NZ and the UK.  She has a strong background in ICT,  English, and Drama.  In her application, Karen said, “Wellington High School’s vision and values align strongly with my philosophical approach to education; that is, that the diversity and individuality of young people and their families must be the springboard for curriculum design.”

Cricket Success

Congratulations to the WHS Cricket Champs who won the junior/intermediate 8 a side 20/20 cricket grade.

They went through the season unbeaten against teams from St Pats Town, St Pats Silverstream (2) and Hutt International Boys (2).

In the final on Saturday they defeated HIBS Y10s, scoring 103 for 7 and bowling HIBS out for 70, winning by 33 runs.

A great effort from a team where everyone contributed with runs, wickets or catches.
