Mr Kent Favel
St Mark’s is such a special place to Kent Favel that this is his second time working at the school. He was the Curriculum Director and Head of Primary from 2002 to 2006, and then returned as Principal in October 2011. Kent’s career has also included roles at Ruawai Primary School and Saint Kentigern School, and he was the Founding Principal of Sunderland School and College in Auckland (now known as ACG Sunderland).
Kent’s aim is to foster the family-focused, friendly atmosphere and culture which St Mark’s is known for. He firmly believes in developing well-rounded young people who will leave St Mark’s armed with important life skills, a love of learning and an understanding that their wellbeing, sport and the arts are just as important as an academic focus.
“Happiness is what we all want for our children and I believe choosing St Mark’s is an investment in present and future happiness. Our students skip into school in the morning because they are keen to learn, eager to see their friends and they love their school – and that is a very good thing.”
