Acting Principal: Simon Mitchell

Welcome to “Our People”, the people of William Colenso College (Years 7 – 13).

We are in the process of appointing a new Principal for WCC, with a commencement date of 2022.

Some comments received from our students and parents about our staff:

“Teachers really care about the students and accept them for who they are, no matter what” – parent

“They always look for the best in your child and are approachable” – parent

“They allow student leaders to fully participate in the school, making decisions, running assemblies…” – parent

“They treat us as individuals and never give up on us” – student

“They go out of their way to help us achieve, they are really flexible” – student

These comments reflect the strong relationships between staff, students and families which I see evidence of every day. These relationships do not happen by chance, as we are very conscious of the importance positive relationships play in enhancing student learning and well-being.
