Senior Leadership team
Hello, my name is Greig Mercer and it is my privilege to be the current principal of Arthur Miller School. I started at the school during 2017 after moving to Hawkes Bay from the Hutt Valley.
I am married to Sue (who is also a teacher) and we have four grown up children. My interests include sport, reading and community service. I am a Justice of the Peace and an active Rotarian.
At Arthur Miller we endeavour to develop children across social, emotional, cultural and physical as well as in academic areas. I believe it is vital that each child feels safe, appreciated and challenged in their learning; with their identity, culture and learning needs met by caring staff.
At Arthur Miller we have high expectations and work hard so that every child can succeed and reach their potential. Our school mission statement is ‘striving towards excellence’, and we build well rounded students through our focus on the 3C values of Caring (Manaakitanga), Collaboration (Mahi Tahi) and Curiosity (Pākiki).
