Mr Neil Porter, Assistant Principal - Community Engagement and Special Projects
As Senior Master External, Neil Porter engages with the community beyond the gates, working with Old Boys, promoting College, recruiting boarders and liaising with other educational organisations. In his role as Housemaster, however, Neil’s focus is firmly inside the gates. He leads the School House pastoral care team, looking after the well being of and acting in loco parentis for its students.
Ten years ago Neil left Wanganui Collegiate to come to College. He feels lucky to have worked in two of the most renowned schools in New Zealand. “I love this place, it’s a privilege to work here. My colleagues, the boys, our community … it makes my work here very special each day.”
