National accolade for manager

Marc Scott with his Service to School Leadership award.

A long-standing staff member of St Peter’s Cambridge has been nationally recognised for his service. Business Manager Marc Scott received the Service to School Leadership award at the Independent Schools New Zealand National Conference in late June.

Marc represented St Peter’s as part of the successful Waikato/BOP bid which saw the Avantidrome constructed on the school site. The Avantidrome is a world-class cycling facility that was officially opened by the Prince and Princess of Wales in 2014, following a government-led tender process for the development of a National Cycling Centre of Excellence.

Marc was also a driving force behind the Perry Pool – an indoor heated pool which is not only home to St Peter’s swimming academy and other competitive swim squads, but also hosts “learn to swim” lessons for pre-schoolers.

“It’s been great to be part of so many exciting projects over the years,” Marc said. “I enjoy working with the various parties within both St Peter’s and the community, to take these opportunities forward.”
