Daniel Birch

Foundation Principal

Daniel is our foundation Principal at HPPS.  His vision for HPPS is to make schooling focussed on the learners and for us take the opportunity to reimagine the possibilities of what we can achieve.  Through approaching education in a future-focused and evidence-based manner we have had over 4000 educator visitors come to see what we are all about thanks to his encouragement, leadership and visioning.  He has connections with some well-known educationalists such as Dr Julia Atkin who have partnered with us in the foundation stages helping to set us up for success in a rapidly changing world.

Daniel is driven, energetic and a leader who is extremely hardworking.  In a growing school, he always puts children first and can often be found in the kitchen sharing his love of cooking with our learners. 

His family moved to Auckland in 2012 for exciting possibilities and to watch Hobsonville Point Schools' grow.  His two daughters and son, are or were enrolled at HPSS and wife, Sarah is a teacher at HPPS.   Prior to moving, he was Principal of Discovery 1 school based in Christchurch's CBD. 

He has a wealth of experience in pushing the boundaries of education and supporting schools through change.  He is an accomplished presenter and facilitator with a passion for supporting others to succeed.  He has been recognised as an Apple Distinguished Educator and has his Master's in Education. 

In his spare time, you'll find him at Muriwai Beach, spending time with family, collecting vinyl records and cooking up delicious meals.
