Currently the Principal at Swannanoa School and recent principal of Breens Intermediate School, Brian has implemented adaptive leadership to the school context.
His experience has seen him adopt and develop a style which reflects servant leadership, Tataiako, collaborative and responsive leadership. One of his best compliments came from ERO “Brian, your school is full of leaders”.
