Meet our Staff

John Marwick / Principal

I am passionate about leading a true learning community where all stakeholders are dedicated to growth and collaboration. I have worked in a variety of schools on the North Shore as well as London and Hong Kong. I believe we have a unique opportunity to create a true future focused community where we display empathy and understanding of people’s beliefs and values.

Angela White / Deputy Principal

I’m passionate about education. Providing pastoral care to both students and teachers is my primary role as Deputy Principal at our school. Having taught all year levels and in a range of primary schools throughout Auckland has equipped me with the necessary skills to relate to students and parents from diverse cultural backgrounds. My door is always open, so please pop in for a chat.

Tracey Towner / Deputy Principal

I believe Forrest Hill School is the best place for every child to develop a love for education and a belief in themselves to achieve the very best they can in an exciting environment. I have had experience teaching all year levels in diverse schools in Auckland, Hamilton and London.  I lead the Awatea Team, Years 1 and 2 and am the Special Education Needs Coordinator for Years 0 to 3.
