13 June Meeting

  • When John Kendal arrived in Kaikohe to become deputy principal at Northland College he received some surprising news. Principal Jim Luders had just resigned. Seizing his opportunity, John put his name forward for the top job. Despite no previous experience as a principal, the college's board decided he was the right person for the job. This week John was the guest of Kaikohe Rotary and he told us what he hopes to achieve in his new job.

  • John is from Te Arawa and brought up in Rotorua. After being head prefect at school he went to university and became a teacher. Before coming to Kaikohe he spent six years at Palmerston North Boys' High School, teaching Maori and Physical Education. John's wife Sarah is deputy principal at Northland College. They have two grown-up children and live near Paihia.

  • John says his mission at Northland College is to create better futures for young people. He wants to instil a culture of respect and pride among the students. He recognises that both Northland College and Kaikohe have been through tough times in recent years. But by believing in ourselves and walking the talk, both can grow and prosper.

  • John knows he's in for some big challenges in a school that has a 98% Maori roll.but he's here for the long haul. Kaikohe Rotary is proud to both welcome John to our town and support him in his work leading Northland College.
