Saint Kentigern has announced the appointment of Mrs Megan Storey as the new Principal of Saint Kentigern Preschool effective 8 May 2023.

Mrs Storey is an experienced early childhood education leader from the Auckland region. She holds a Bachelor of Teaching degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Auckland. Mrs Storey has previously worked in teaching roles before moving into leadership positions, where she has consistently delivered high-quality leadership and learning outcomes for young children.

Mrs Storey's passion for education and commitment to delivering outstanding results led her to join Bear Park, where she managed the Kohimarama and Remuera centres before serving as a member of the organization's pedagogical leadership team. During her tenure, Mrs Storey's leadership and vision contributed to the growth in student enrolments, programme offerings, and teaching excellence.

Mrs Storey's connection with Saint Kentigern extends beyond her professional career. Her husband and father-in-law both attended Saint Kentigern Boys' School, and as a parent of two young children, she understands the joys and challenges of raising a family.

On her appointment to Saint Kentigern Preschool, Mrs Storey expressed deep gratitude for the opportunity to serve the Saint Kentigern community. She said, "I am extremely honoured to be joining the Saint Kentigern family, an organisation with strong values and vision for excellence in education. I look forward to working with the exceptional team of teachers and parents to provide the best possible learning experience in a collaborative, nurturing and supportive environment where our Preschool children can thrive, learn and strive for excellence."

Mrs Storey's appointment follows the resignation of Mrs Nikki Joyce, who served as the Preschool's Principal for the past three years. The Trust Board is grateful for Mrs Joyce's leadership and contribution to the establishment of the Preschool's new site at Shore Road, and wishes her all the best for her future endeavours.

We are confident that under Mrs Storey's leadership and with the support of the Preschool's dedicated teaching team, the Preschool will continue to deliver exceptional early childhood education and care to our children. Please join us in welcoming Mrs Storey to the Saint Kentigern community.
