Photo: ROSEMARY McLENNAN By ROSEMARY McLENNAN ' I feel really privileged to have moved from one Upper Hutt school to another. ' Maoribank School principal Paula Afoa Raising the profile and improving the street frontage of Maoribank School are high on the priority list for new principal Paula Afoa. The school, which has been open for more than 40 years, is tucked away on back sections in Hillside Dr. It draws its pupils mostly from Maoribank and Timberlea. Named best educational facility in the 2009 Upper Hutt Business Excellence Awards, the school has a roll of 90, after losing some pupils whose families moved out of the area. Ms Afoa says the school features smaller classes, hardworking teachers and a covered swimming pool. So the kids get a really good deal,'' she says. Setting up a school website is another wish. Ms Afoa moved to Maoribank from St Joseph's School, where she was deputy principal, earlier this month, replacing Kay Wilson who left at the end of term 1 and moved to Whangarei. The new principal was brought to Maoribank by a group from St Joseph's, including many from the kapa haka group. Ms Afoa's elder son, Joseph Afoa, 15, gave a speech, and her younger son, Eli, 11, and her part- ner, Errol Weston, did a haka. I feel really privileged to have moved from one Upper Hutt school to another,'' she said. Ms Afoa, whose Maori ancestry is mostly Ngati Raukawa, began her teaching career at Avalon Intermediate in 2002 and moved to St Joseph's about four years ago. Becoming a principal was always her goal and she is grate- ful to the principals who have mentored her. Her years at St Joseph's mean she knows the local community and its schools well.
