Dr Stephen Kendall-Jones resigns as AJHS Principal 

It was with a heavy heart that our Principal, Dr Stephen Kendall-Jones resigned on Monday. 

Stephen has the exciting opportunity to contribute to the youth in his own community, with his appointment as Principal at Helensville Primary School. AJHS wishes Stephen all the very best for his new role.

The Board will be looking to appoint a new Principal in the near future, and will update parents and caregivers once that appointment has been made.

In the meantime, once Stephen has left AJHS, the Board will be appointing an Acting Principal, which will be communicated to parents and caregivers after appointment.

Making ‘Online’ Safe for our Students

Held in partnership with Upper Harbour Primary School, this evening will inform parents about the issues and themes related to online use and safety, including tips, tools and strategies to support and guide parents’ understanding and support of their child’s learning.

At the rock wall and abseil tower the students were able to investigate first-hand, the effects of adrenaline (from stress) and exertion on blood pressure and heart rate.
