Jared comes to KingsGate School as an experienced Principal, most recently at Hikuai School near Pauanui.
Jared looks to lead in a way that builds and creates harmony and emotional bonds in an environment where people come first. He is a visionary and likes to bring a 'come with me' enthusiasm built on clear communication to his leadership role.
Jared holds a degree in Education and Social Policy, together with a Post-Graduate Diploma in Primary Education from Victoria University in Wellington.
He identifies his leadership strengths in areas of curriculum knowledge, enjoying regular classroom practice, digital technologies, school finances and building school culture and cameraderie.
Personal benevolence, recognition of others in their achievements and milestones, ingenuity and an active lifestyle that include social interaction with students are hallmarks of Jared's personal style.
A committed Christian from his early years involved with the Salvation Army, Jared reflects that life is good when walking close to the Lord and life is harder when not doing so. He currently enjoys an inter-denominational fellowship and in so doing, brings a breadth of Christian perspective to KingsGate School in 2018.
We are delighted to welcome Jared to lead this growing school through the next important stage of its growth and development.
