Allan Vester has retired as Principal of Edgewater College after 23 years. Known for his ability and willing input, Allan has played a tremendous role as a member and supporter of Pakuranga Rotary.    Events such as Top Schools and our Trivia evenings would not have been the same without the assistance Allan gave when he made the facilities of the College available, his readiness to set up and run the sound systems, assist with maintenance of equipment and generally do as much around the Pakuranga Rotary’s activities as demands on his time would allow.
In addition to his long term at Edgewater College, Allan was Chair of the New Zealand Secondary Principals’ Council for 5 years. He leaves Edgewater College in great shape, with a loyal staff and students who have enjoyed their time at school, his emphasis being that everyone cares about each other. He looks forward to maintaining his interest in education and having the time to expand his recreational opportunities.
Pakuranga Rotary congratulated Allan and proudly presented him with a Community Service Award and wished him all the best for his future endeavours which will no doubt retain a community focus while giving him a bit more time for his own interests as well.
