Meet the Staff

Principal

Jason Reid

Tēnā koutou katoa,

 

It is a great privilege to have been appointed as tumuaki/principal of Kaiapoi High School, and I look forward to getting to know its students, staff, whānau, iwi, and community over the coming weeks. 

I have had the pleasure of working with Geraldine Enerson from afar over the last term, and I thank her for her outstanding work as Acting Principal. It is a complex role that holds many challenges. I look forward to picking up the legacy left by Bruce Kearney and to working with our community as we continue to evolve and build on Kaiapoi High School’s focus on excellence in academic, cultural, arts, and sporting endeavours. 

It is with great pleasure that I contribute my knowledge and skills to the already formidable set held by the Kaiapoi community. An exciting future awaits. 

 

Nāu te rourou, nāku te rourou, ka ora ai te iwi

With your basket and my basket, the people will thrive

 

Ngā mihi mahana
