Mr. Neil Garry - Principal

M.Ed. (Distinction), Dip. P.E., Dip Tchg.

Mr Garry is a long serving member on the John McGlashan College staff. He started working as Head of the Physical Education department and quickly moved to more senior responsibilities. Mr Garry took up the post of principal in January 2014.

During his time at the college he has held senior leadership roles in both the boarding house and school and has had a powerful influence on sport, outdoor education, curriculum development and cultural activities.

His focus is on creating and maximising opportunities for every student.

He applies a common sense approach and engenders mutual respect within the student body. He finds McGlashan an inspiring place to work and he has much to offer!

Ichikawa High School Visit

On Monday 12th March we welcomed the Ichikawa High School Group in true McGlashan style. The group of 22 students (10 boys and 12 girls) arrived on a sunny Dunedin day and were greeted with an awesome Haka perfomance from the Hostel Boarders and our school piper - Qwenton McKenzie.

Welcome to all our international boys. We hope all of you had a fantastic holiday and are ready for 2018 with high spirits! 

As your prefect this year, I would like to see all international boys getting more involved with school events and also with the Kiwi boys.
