I have been Deputy Principal here at St Joseph’s for many years.I am responsible for the Senior Syndicate, (Rooms 1 - 6), and I support Miss Horgan in the running of the school. I am also responsible for sport throughout the school.
I share an office with Mrs West, who is responsible for the Junior School.
I love working with the pupils of St Joseph’s because they are so eager to learn new things and work hard to do their very best.

Nga mihi nui, ko Helen West ahau. I’m delighted to be in a new role of Assistant Principal in this friendly and ‘whanau orientated’ community of St Joseph's School Otahuhu. Previously I have been in teaching and management roles in Auckland and Northland schools and value this new opportunity of sharing skills and experiences with my colleagues here. I look forward to working with the staff, students and school community and contributing to a successful learning journey for all children at St Joseph’s School.
