2012 will see the college hostel under new management. The following information has been taken from the latest College newsletter.

Following an extremely successful four-year term as Dean of Boarding, assisted by her husband Steve, Mrs Sjaane Simpson has resigned effective from the
end of this year to continue in the role of Director of Religious Studies and return to a full time teaching position at the College. The Board of La Salle House Ltd is pleased to announce that Mrs Simpson’s replacement will be Mr Heta Smith.

A baptised Catholic, aged 51 and secondary educated in Waitara, Mr Smith originally trained in the construction industry, served in the New Zealand Army, and following his training as a teacher, has taught Technology subjects in
two Hamilton secondary schools since 1996. In addition to his role as Assistant Head of Technology at St Paul’s Collegiate in Hamilton, Mr Smith currently serves as Housemaster of Williams House in the school’s hostel. This sees him responsible for the welfare of 75 Year 9 to 13 boarders on a seven day
boarding basis.He has been involved with boarding for eight years. 

Mr Smith will be joined by his wife Margie. She is a qualified librarian and secondary teacher specialising in Social Sciences and English. She has also served St Paul’s in the capacity of Director of International Students. Mr Smith will take
up his duties on 20 January and will be joined by Mrs Smith once she has rounded off her international student commitments at St Paul’s.
