Spine Tingling Powhiri for Wellesley’s New Principal

03 June 2021

The first 3 minutes of Monday’s Powhiri were some of the most powerful and moving moments that have ever been witnessed in Wellesley’s history, as we welcomed our new principal, Michael Bain, his family and Te Mata school into the Wellesley whanau.

Spine-tingling, emotional and unforgettable moments. We are so proud of our boys, the teachers and everyone who contributed to making this special ceremony so memorable.



Clearly not a man to spend too much time stuck in his office, Mike has spent his first few days out and about in classrooms and meeting his new staff.

Nau mai Mr Bain – exciting times ahead for Wellesley .
