Ms Reid was a good principal but I wished she had spent more time getting to know her students individually.
Ms Reid is the best principal ever I'm sad that she is leaving next year and she is very nice
She is a good principle, but considering the amount of money we pay every year, if she doing worse that what she is doing, she would be such a lame. Also, she makes the school become way too commercialise. She should be a business woman rather than school principle
Ms Reid, has been a very good principal, she sometimes walks around the school and chats with the students. And she makes time to sign reports or sometimes even comment! Ms Reid is a great role model for the school!
Mrs Reid is a great principal, however, she does not know my name yet
Um, okay I think we need to acknowledge something, St Cuthbert's is a private school, therefore if the principal of our school feels the need to run it like a business, that is completey her choice an
An amazingly organized and hard worker, Mrs Reid is pretty cool
Mrs Reid seems to know everyones name, she is an amazing principal. Felt really lucky to have her the whole way through school, I hope she stays there for a long time to come.
Great principal in evry way. Works really hard fr us
if most of the prnts were against ncea they wldnt send their kids there.she knws mst kids names and out of 1400 that must b hard although i agree she runs the school like a bsiness but i like her.
She does an amazing job in a difficult role. Her style will never suit everyone, but she caters very well for the majority and gives an education to be valued so highly no one should complain.
I think that she is really cool as a person but is a bit too involved in the business aspect of the school. I also think that Kahunui hasn't been thought through as well as it should have been.
i was nominated for headgirl and a prefect and she never learnt my name
Mrs Reid is a truly extrodinary woman. Not only does she know everyone's name, but most ppl's interests and strengths. She is also a wonderful speaker, and St Cuth's is a type of business- and she does care a lot about the students!
a truly strong woman who really cares about the school as a whole. she knows almost everyones names and knows the line between seriousness and fun. she is really good in assemblies and i like her lame jokes too!
I totally disagree with those who say she was impersonal... from my recollection she knew the names of most of the students (no small feat) and was always friendly and approachable (well, as approachable as a principal can be). She did an excellent job stepping in at a difficult time for the school
Must be a very stressful job with the reputation St Cuthberts has to live up to, so from that point of view she does very well, although can be at times she can be a bit impersonal and makes up her own mind instead of listening to the masses (i.e. regarding NCEA), rightly or wrongly.
She's rather a zealot-doesn't listen or seem to care that the vast majority of students, staff and parents are against NCEA and refuses to consider offering CIE or the IB. The Kahanui plan is a joke too. Mind you, she must have done something right-St Cuth's is doing well & has great staff.
just because assemblies can get boring doesn't mean she is not the excellent speaker she is - proof: her meaningful and almost always helpful, inspiring speeches at however many school assemblies she speaks to us in. knows the balance between authority and friendliness, seriosity and fun
Well she seems to be doing something right. St Cuth's are the leading school in education. Other schools look up to St. Cuth's.
she is really nice better than anyother principal ive had. she does care about us no matter what anyone else says.
mrs reid is really funny and nice she DOES care for the students and is doing an excelent job (i even like her lame jokes)
she is really really really cool and cares for all of us and she is so lovely and kind!!!! She is really fun to! Dnt ever ever leave st cuths, you rock our school!!!! Assemblys are fun too!!! YOU ROCK
