Catering for the needs of the emerging adolescent in the knowledge era has been the focus for Owen Alexander in his third principal ship at Takapuna Normal Intermediate School.

Working with a dedicated teaching team to build on the sound traditions of the past and creating a learning environment that is future focused has been an exciting journey. Revising curriculum and the processes that underpin its delivery have been important for the school not only as a provider for teacher education as a Normal School but for all members of the TNIS learning community, students, teachers and parents.
