Neal Swindells, St Patrick’s College This is my 5th year as Rector at St Patrick’s College. I have an extensive background in boys education at a number of state and Integrated schools. My passion is working with staff and parents to develop the talents of students and to see our students grow from boys to good young men. St Patrick’s College has been a key
part of the Wellington education community for 133 years and is constantly looking at how we can improve. Our boys love their College and are proud to wear the blue and white uniform. Our core values are Faith, Excellence, Learning, Community, Well-being and Brotherhood. We provide strong academic programmes that embrace
digital technology, a huge variety of sports and cultural opportunities where students can strive to excel or just enjoy participating. All of this is underpinned by our Catholic Faith, service to others and a strong sense of helping each student be the best they can be. Our expectation is that our leavers will go on to be leaders in the community.

Joyce Adam, Miramar North School I once asked a group of long standing parents in the marketing and advertising industry what they thought the Miramar North School brand Included. Whilst schools have their vision, rarely do we think of this as our ‘brand’. The most common responses referred to the daily enactment of our shared values, excellent pas-
toral care of our children and the deep level to which the teachers know their students. Other responses included the strong sense of tradition and the bringing together of people. Our mantra at Miramar North School is centred on getting to know our students in order to meet their emotional needs and
wellbeing as well as their academic necessities. Our curriculum is designed so that it is accessible for all students creating equal opportunity for all. I am proud of our children and of our teachers - they are creators of community and practitioners of our vision and values each day.
