This week we are joined by Gregor Fountain, Principal at Wellington College. Gregor is a brave and bold educational leader; he is passionate about young people and serving school communities. In this episode you get a real sense for the enthusiasm and story telling that would have been evident in the classroom during his teaching career, and is now clearly visible in his role as a school leader.
We talk about:
- Some of the people and experiences that influenced Gregor being where he is today
- Leadership and its many and varied forms
- Values based education
- The role of boys’ schools in nurturing a sense of belonging
- His commitment to Te Reo Māori
