Pauline Engel

Dame Sister Pauline Frances Engel, DBE is a member of the Sisters of Mercy who served as the third principal of Carmel College in Auckland, New Zealand, and the first principal to be appointed (in 1983) by Carmel College's Board of Governors.

Partial history of Carmel College

In 1957, the long held dream of the Sisters of Mercy to establish a Catholic girls' school on the North Shore was realised. Carmel College is the Mercy Charism which is still at the heart or centre of the school.

Sister Mary Justine Gillies was given the mission of founding Carmel College on donated land, initially with fifteen students and no actual classrooms. Sister Justine gathered dedicated teaching Sisters and, as the school grew, these Sisters were joined by the first full-time lay teacher, Mrs Verena Butler, in 1963.

Under Sister Pauline (the third principal of the College, who was appointed in 1983 by the school's Governors) the College undertook an extensive programme of building, expanding and refurbishing. This included building a gymnasium, a food and technology block, an Arts block and the refurbishment of the Science laboratories.
