"We have some smart students, then we have some VERY smart students" -Prue Kelly.
hahaha classic! I don't think I'll ever forget that speech.
She called me a beached turtle, publicly shaming me in front of my class mates!
i meet this wonderful lady ten years ago when my daughter went for her interview i found her as a wonderful person she was a pleasure to meet and a true character for that school she will sadly miss
scary as all hell but the BEST person i have ever met! love you prue
Great Principal, Wellington High is an awesome school and she has done a bloody good job with this school. I am extremely proud to call myself a student to her school. Good work Prue.
While i don't like her that much she is still a great principal and teacher and has done a lot for the school
Mrs Kelly was one of my best teachers and is a wonderful, strong and intelligent female rolemodel/leader!
She really cares about the school, but I'm not sure if she cares about the students in it. She should re-think her career. Oh and her 3R's are really annoying, she repeats her speech every assembly.
She is a strong leader and has a lot of compassion. She is a wonderful lady!
Prue Kelly is the reason that Wellington High is the way it is now. In the last decade WHS has advanced from being 'a hole' to being one of the most efficiently run and resource rich schools in NZ.
I think Prue Kelly is a fantastic principal! She has totally changed the way we learning and restores confidence in students. She is a leader and a innovator.
Prue Kelly is the most amazing person ever. I love her! She made my school life a safe, fun, secure, challenging, supported journey. I would not have been able to succeed the way I have with out her.
A great principal - energetic, innovative,informed, approachable and on the kids wavelength. Prue has made a huge difference to WHS. Rated by students, and staff. Prue, you rock.
An excellent leader at WHS for many years. Inspiring, motivating and professional.
A great principal that challenges you to do your best. Her efforts and thoughts are a large part of what has made me successful!
I know Prue Kelly from many years ago when she was the senior mistress at Birkdale College (Early to Mid 80's).Prue demanded respect from the students & that put is in good stead for the future!!
always says the same thing. more intrested in bettering the schools rep than bettering the school
brilliant, really brilliant. take no notice of the awful comments that people have writtin, because you're a really great person, i know. thanks so much, annon.
I'd just like to say thanks for the patience you had for me back in third form, when I was in your office every morning to collect my daily report. I was a very trying individual back in those days, more because of my home situation, but you always had time to listen to me, asked me how I was and occasionally shared a laugh. So thanks for being that human side in what was a very miserable time for me. I wish I hadn't left WHS, but again that was out of my control. Thank you so much!
Definitely a proud and dedicated principle who takes care of all the boring stuff we students don't think about. She looks like a tough nut, but she's pretty much a friendly old coot with a stern salespitch. She's fair and reasonable and good for High. RB.
if prue ever stopped trying to make a name for herself with all this late start, "look at me, i started this craze". she might realise that most of the school thinks that she has the inability to realise that we are kids and that kids make mistakes.
A true believer in the Wellington High ethos and a committed principal
she's a wiked principal. she would do anything to help students learn the arts but she lacks initiative to do something about the hygen in our school bathrooms
She is a very good principal. She knows what she's doing and always keeps good relationships with students. Very straightforward. But it is time for the three "D's" or so...
An innovative principal who genuinely cares about WHS and us students. She's not scared to try new things. WHS RESPECT!!!
the three R's- Reading, Riting and Rithmatic. Prue Kelly is AWESOME!!!! TEN TWENTY STARTS!!!!! marry me.
Listening to your students is a skill that principals should have: unfortunatley Prue has not mastered this skill. All the dealings I have had with her have been frustrating to say the least. LISTEN!
Good principal, you got to love those three R's, never will rmember what the three are, but will alway no dat respect is important, she must be doing sumthin rite cause our skool isinnovative and kool
Seems to be trying to create some sort of legacy for herself by doing something new, treats us as guinea pigs always implementing new schemes. Does genuinely care and is passionate about WHS.
pretty decent, more talk than action though, but altogether proud to have her as our principal, yay whs!
Prue Kelly is a great spokesperson for the school however the 3 R's speech is rather inaffective and old
Only see her when she leaves her office promote the school and for assemblies , but good lady
