Board of Trustees

Warren Peat, (Deputy Chair & Proprietor Rep.) Since February 2016, Warren has been the CEO for the NZ Christian Proprietor’s Trust, the national body that holds the integration agreements for a number of schools across the country with the crown.

Warren has a background and qualifications in commerce and has spent 30+ years in education, teaching, leading and governing in schools across the state, private and now integrated school sectors, including Acting Principal at Avondale College, Executive Head at Saint Kentigern College and Executive Head at John Paul College in Brisbane, Australia.

Primarily his role is to support the principal in each of the schools in the NZCPT network, to help guide the Board regarding the respective responsibilities of the school and the proprietor, and to safeguard the special character of the school in respect of governance decisions being taken by the Board.  In his spare time, fishing with his adult sons comes a close second to enjoying the company of his wife, nurse and chief supporter, Gwyneth.


Shane Wairau, (Parent Representative)
“My wife and I wanted our sons to be educated at Kingsview School because of its Christian foundations and teachings.  These aligned with our own beliefs and so it was an easy decision for us to make.  I am currently the Human Resource Manager at AJ Hackett Bungy and I have been working for the company since my wife and I moved to Queenstown over 20 years ago (originally we came from the sunny southern metropolis of Invercargill!). This is the first time I have been on a Board of Trustees and I choose to do this because I wanted to be involved with how the two most precious people in my wife’s and my life are educated.  Since joining the Board of Trustees I have found everyone to have similar goals, focus and passion – therefore making this experience both enjoyable and educational.
