Warren Peat

CEO

 

Since February 2016, Warren has been the CEO for the NZ Christian Proprietor’s Trust, the national body that holds the integration agreements for a number of schools across the country with the crown.  He sits on a number of school Boards of Trustees as the representative of the proprietor including KingsWay School, Horizon School and KingsGate School in Pukekohe.

Warren is also the CEO for the KingsWay Trust, the local body that has delegated responsibility from the NZCPT to maintain the land and buildings and protect, maintain and enhance the special character of the schools for which the Trust is responsible.  He is also responsible for appointing the further three Board of Trustees members who will represent the proprietor and complement the skill sets of those elected parent representatives.

In his spare time, he is the chairman of directors for the KingsWay Early Childhood Centres, where our youngest learners begin their journey in a wonderfully Christian pre-school environment.

Warren has a background and qualifications in commerce and has spent 30+ years in education, teaching, leading and governing in schools across the state, private and now integrated school sectors, including Acting Principal at Avondale College, Executive Head at Saint Kentigern College and Executive Head at John Paul College in Brisbane, Australia.

Primarily his role is to support the principal in each of the schools in the NZCPT network, to help guide the Board regarding the respective responsibilities of the school and the proprietor, and to safeguard the special character of the school in respect of governance decisions being taken by the Board.

In his spare time, fishing with his adult sons comes a close second to enjoying the company of his wife, nurse and chief supporter, Gwyneth.
