The Waiouru School Board of Trustees is pleased to introduce our Interim Principal for Term Two – Margaret Hyslop.
Kia ora, my name is Margaret Hyslop (my family and friends call me Marg or Margie). I have been privileged to be the principal of three different rural primary schools and also previously had great opportunities to work as a teacher at all class levels in both primary and secondary (Y1 – Y13) during my long career in education.
I was raised in a large family on a dairy farm just outside Eketahuna under the Tararua ranges, beside the Makakahi river. My Dad served in the 22nd and 25th Battalions during WW2. I am married to Bill who is a fencing contractor (previously sheep & beef farming) and we have four children and three grandchildren. We reside in the beautiful Wairarapa (Masterton) on a lifestyle block.
I am really excited about working at Waiouru in Term 2, and am looking forward to meeting BOT, staff, students, whanau and school community.
