My name is Brent Griffin, I am principal at the best school in the universe.

I am married to Cheryl and she is the school librarian at our school. I have 3 beautiful children, Jamie who has moved back to New Zealand with her family, Keegan who lives in Rotorua and is studying to be a teacher and my son Mitchell who has resently started his own fitness classes. I have 4 grandchildren, Tyler, Noah, Cohen, , Savannah and Corbin. 

I really enjoy my job, working with great people and awesome students. I am so lucky to have the job I have. I love playing soccer however my wife has told me to give it up and stick to golf. I love all sports and love watching the Warriors, Arsenal and of course the All Blacks.

My favourite place in the world other than Western Heights Primary School is Hawaii. I save tirelessly ever year to try to get to Waikiki beach. I just love it.

I am proud to be the Principal of Te Kura o Whakaahu. My wish is for every student who attends my school to become a lifelong learner future leader and a citizen our country can be proud of.
