I am the Principal of Puketaha school with a masters in Educational Leadership from the University of Waikato.
The last few months has rocked our equilibrium and as a result we have a unique opportunity to ensure that the Wel Energy Trust really delivers on the needs and aspirations of our community. It requires both a strategic approach and strong moral compass to achieve positive, tangible outcomes for our customers and region.
