New Principal Makala Pa‘akaula
Our new po‘o kumu attended Pū‘ōhala as a child. She is the product of Castle Complex schools with a son at Castle High and another at Kahuku High and Intermediate. Po‘o kumu Makala views her principalship as a chance to give back to the community, provide leadership that makes a difference and make student-centered decisions.
“I believe in the ripple effect and now I have greater impact on how far the ripples travel. It’s my kuleana.”
