Alumni Profile

Alex Beijen

I attended MGS from 1972 to 1983. My Primer 1 teacher was the famous Miss Martin, for who I had the pleasure of speaking at her eventual retirement assembly in the late 1990s.

Back in the day, Middleton Grange was a smaller school, and even had a boarding facility, with famous Kombi vans to transport students. Following school I attended Lincoln University and graduated with a BCom, and spent many years in sales and management. I married in 1995, have 3 children, and a very patient wife Julie.

In 2019 I became Mayor of the South Wairarapa, and am now very involved in social and economic outcomes for the district. My hobbies are car collecting, numismatics, and maintaining a large lifestyle property in Martinborough.
