Vice-Principal's message: 

Hello Students, Parents and Community members,

I am very excited to be starting year 2 as the Vice Principal of both Anzac and Bill Woodward Schools. I have been teaching with Northland since 2008, most of which has been spent here in this wonderful community.

We are looking forward to continuing the wonderful efforts of our staff to provide sports programs, mentor programs, community involvement, open door policies and positive learning environments to our schools. We are also happy to be welcoming some new staff members to the wolf pack, each of which will bring fresh ideas and excitement to our schools.

I hope everyone has had a great summer break and is ready to get back in the class! We are excited to see all of you and kick off a great school year.

Pride in the Wolf Pack
