Br Steve Hogan - On The Move

News this week from Auckland that FDMC old boy Br Steve Hogan is to end his time as Principal at De La Salle Mangere to take up the Principal's position at the Brother's school in Hong Kong.

Br Steve was Head Boy at FDMC in 1979, has done several tours of duty teaching at the college and has been a member of the Board of Trustees over the last decade. We wish him well in his new position and know he will bring his trademark hands on approach to his new role.

The following is an exert from the De La Salle BOT Chairman's letter announcing Br Steve's departure.

"It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter to our College community informing them of Br Steve Hogan’s resignation from his position as Principal of De La Salle College. Br Steve will conclude his service to the College on 12 March and Brian Evans will be appointed Acting Principal as we begin the recruitment process to find a new Principal.

De La Salle College exists to educate boys through a Catholic and Lasallian tradition to be exemplary and nationally recognised. Our staff lead by example and many of our teachers are called to other roles because of their success in teaching our young men. Br Steve leaves the College to take up the Principal position of the De La Salle school in Hong Kong. I’m sure his exemplary record and achievements here in Mangere East played a part in his selection to lead the Brothers’ school in Hong Kong.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and our College community I wish to acknowledge and thank Br Steve for his huge commitment to educating our young men. There is a long list of highlights during Br Steve’s time at the College including the continued strengthening of our academic achievements and recognition of our achievements outside the classroom. Br Steve has built a strong team of teachers and support staff that will continue to serve the College. Br Steve’s compassion, faith and service leaves a lasting mark on the College and he joins a very distinguished list of former Principals and teachers that can lay claim to educating and positively influencing the lives of thousands of men and their families."
