Mauriceville has new principal

[email protected]

Mauriceville School is gearing up for the new school year which brings with it a new head at the helm.

Kim Lupo will be joining the school as the new principal, bringing 20 years of teaching experience with her.

She is no stranger to leadership, spending the plast 10 years as deputy principal at Konini School in Wanuiomata, as well as a year as assistant principal at Naenae Primary School, and two terms as acting principal at Epuni School.

Lupo said she was excited about moving to the region with her husband, Glenn, as it had always appealed to them.

“I’ve always wanted to live in Wairarapa,” she said.

“We’ve got friends who live here and it’s an area we spend a lot of time in and now the children have grown up, it’s time to make the move.

“It’s a beautiful area and the people are really friendly.”

Her previous school had a roll of over 200 students, but Lupo said she was looking forward to embracing everything a small rural school such as Mauriceville School brings.

“Epuni School only had 100 students and it gave me the opportunity to really know the families and children, and I really enjoyed that.”

She has already met some of the children and staff when she spent a day in Mauriceville last year, saying they were all “really fantastic”.

“I love the small school feel and I’m looking forward to meeting all the parents and students in the community.

“There’s a lot to do in schools and with a smaller staff you have to share it around, so those relationships are really important.”

Lupo will relocate to Wairarapa in time for the first term and will be staying with friends until she and her husband find their own place.
