Introducing Nick Gunn

John Stackhouse —

Our new Deputy Principal, from Term 4.

With Genevieve Rae leaving us this week to shift to Nelson, we have been going through the process of appointing a new Deputy Principal. This appointment has now been confirmed and Nick Gunn, currently Deputy Principal at Lemonwood Grove in Rolleston, will be joining us at the beginning of Term 4. 

Nick wrote this little piece for inclusion in our newsletter: 

I graduated from Massey University's College of Education in 2000. 

My teaching career began with four and a half years teaching in London schools. I have been Deputy Principal at Lemonwood Grove School in Rolleston for the last three years and at Shirley Primary School in Christchurch as Deputy Principal prior to this. 

I live in Christchurch with Katherine and our three boys, Joseph, Rhys and James and Isie, our German Short-Haired Pointer pup. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and riding my mountain bike in the Port Hills and beyond. I am really excited to be joining the Redwood Whanau in term 4.
