Introducing Mrs Anna Swann - Principal

The Board of Trustees is delighted to announce that we have appointed Anna Swann as the new Principal of St Dominic’s Catholic College.

Anna and her family are well known amongst our College community.  She was a student of the College herself, and she has remained close to the College as her daughters have proudly followed in her footsteps as St Dominic’s students.  

Anna is passionate about Catholic education, girls’ education, and the education community of West Auckland.   Anna was part of the team at Holy Cross Catholic School in Henderson for nine years, four of these as Deputy Principal.  Many of you will also know Anna from her work with the Waitakere Kāhui Ako/Community  of  Learning.

Anna returns to the West Auckland school community from her current role as Principal of St. Ignatius Catholic School in St Heliers Bay. Those who know Anna will say she never really left us, but in any case the Board of Trustees is delighted to welcome her back.

Anna now takes her place in the succession of Principals who have built upon the work of those who came before them, building St Dominic’s from its early beginnings in 1952 to the outstanding school that is today. 

As we welcome Anna back to the College, we also farewell Carol Coddington after 23 years in the role.   We thank Carol for all she has done for the College, and wish her well in her new role as Deputy CEO of the NZ Catholic Education Office.
