Trident is proud to introduce Mr Jefferson Greenwood as our new Deputy Principal, joining our Senior Management Leadership Team. Mr Greenwood originally hails from Manchester, UK but has spent the last 13 years in New Zealand. Having spent 3 years at Manurewa High School and the last 10 years as HOD PE and the Assistant Principal at Ormiston Senior College in Auckland, Mr Greenwood has welcomed the move to Whakatane and looks forward to immersing himself into Trident and Whakatane life. Mr Greenwood, his wife and two children moved from a small beach community in South East Auckland called Maraetai and we wish them all the very best in settling into life here.
When time allows Mr Greenwood enjoys coaching and playing club football and trains for triathlons when he has the capacity. The beautiful trail runs around our area will surely be well used by Mr Greenwood, especially when the weather warms up! He says he is also looking forward to trying out a bit of surfing at Ohope this summer.
Mr Greenwood says he chose Trident for its strong sporting culture, to be close to the ocean and says Trident felt like it was somewhere he could make a difference.
Welcome Mr Greenwood!
