Dear Parents/Caregivers and all whanau of Birdwood School


We hope that this announcement finds you well.  As you are all aware, the board was working through the process of finding and appointing a new Principal for our Birdwood School.  We are happy to notify you all that the board of Birdwood School met on Saturday to interview selected candidates for the principal’s position.  Those interviewed were of a very high calibre and the board is now pleased to announce that Mrs Victoria (Vikki) Rihari has accepted the offer to be our new principal. 


Vikki is currently deputy principal at Konini School in Glen Eden and was previously DP at Holy Cross Catholic School in Henderson.  Prior to that she taught for 15 years at Henderson North School and 10 years at Pomaria School where she was Head of Curriculum and Team Leader.  She is married with 4 children (Georgia 25, Kahurangi 22, Edyn 17 and Waiaria 11),  and has a keen interest in singing, cooking and watching Kapa Haka! 


Vikki can’t wait to meet and get to know the Birdwood whānau.    We look forward to welcoming Vikki to Birdwood School at the start of term 4 this year.  Further details will be communicated to you all in due time.


Warmest regards

Theresa Stowers
