TERM THREE HOLIDAYS: 26 SEPTEMBER - 11 OCTOBER 2020
“Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. For, indeed, that's all who ever have.” - Margaret Mead
After 18 wonderful years of leadership from our Principal Mr David Macleod, we are sad to announce he is retiring at the end of this year. Whilst we understand the lure of enjoying grandchildren, roaming through native forests and finally hooking the one that got away in seas up north and down south, we will miss the man with a big heart. He has seen this College grow considerably over the 18 years; he has steered a large, diverse College community that is proud of who we are.
Strong values and the deepest belief in the potential of youth rests at the centre of Mr Macleod's leadership. And to that purpose he has worked tirelessly with the many evolutions of the Board, senior leadership teams, staff and community agencies to support our tamariki in their growth. David Macleod believes in an ethos of service and no doubt will continue to serve in new ways.
We will celebrate Mr Macleod's term as Principal later in the year.
Below is a link to the recent interview with David Macleod in the Mahurangi Matters following his announcement of intention to retire.
At Our Place, Mahurangi College, we encourage, model and learn about a set of values that we believe are important for young people.
Pride in self, pride in our school and pride in Our Place.
Pursuing excellence Mahuhukiterangi

Innovative and curious Ako
Determined and resilient Manawaroa
Empathetic and kind Atawhai
