I am a secondary school teacher in New Zealand who has recently completed a thesis at masters level on the complexity of pastoral care in New Zealand Secondary schools. I’m a fulltime teacher and dean. Through this blog, I am endeavouring to fill a gap by providing support for those who are undertaking pastoral care middle management roles in NZ secondary schools.  I’m passionate about providing further professional development opportunities for deans/house leaders/head of year levels in secondary schools. I’m contactable through this blog.

    This is great – I am part of a learning community (Western Springs College, MRGS and Lynfield) who are considering the Deans role in light of the NZC – would it be possible to access your thesis?

      Hi Leisa. Thanks for your comment. It’s great to know that someone is reading the blog. It is also encouraging to know that there is other interesting things happening in NZ around the Deans role. Any feedback that you have around things I could include in the blog would be great. I will send a copy of the thesis to your email address. I’m really interested in hearing more about your learning community. Thanks again. Kiely
