Ko Puketoi toku maunga

Tu tonu mai ra

He rere ana te wai!

Ko Dave Sedcole toku ingoa


I moved from the Wairarapa to the mighty Te Tai Tokerau in 2004. I was the Principal at Peria School for five wonderful years where I meet the most talented, humble brilliant people. In 2009 I became the principal at Mangonui School. It is a privilege and honor to be Tumuaki of a school with such a deep history and amazing community. My family and I live locally and love living in the Far North. Two of our lads have been to Mangonui School with one three years away from joining the Pukeko class. I am passionate about education. Passionate about everyone getting a great education no matter where you come from or where you live and that drives me every day.
