Introducing our Pastoral Team for Term 3

Our team is under-going a number of changes and additions as we move into Term 3. Our Director of Pastoral Care, Katie Stanton, is going on Maternity Leave in Week 4. Congratulations to Chris Leader who will move into this role. As a result, Matt Kippenberger will take over the role of Marlow Dean.

We would also like to introduce two new members of the Pastoral Team at STC in 2022.

Patrick McEntyre

Patrick joins us for two days a week (Thus/Fri) as an addition to our Guidance Counselling team. He has a huge amount of expertise and experience in educational psychology at both the school and Ministry of Education level. Patrick has quickly built a strong rapport with many students which fits in perfectly with our STC focus on whanaungatanga.

Patrick can be contacted on

Carolyn Bickerton

Carolyn joins us in the role of Student and Family Well-being. She will be active in meeting new students and their families, and available to support in a variety of ways. Amongst other things she will be liaising with organisations who offer programmes to enhance student well-being (adventure based learning, mentoring), working to reduce barriers to student engagement and learning, and available to offer support to families of our students in a variety of ways.

Carolyn works at school Monday and Tuesdays and can be contacted by email or telephone 0282 5560 348.
