Our Chaplaincy fosters a culture of service to others and is an important source of support and connection for our students.

Reverend Gareth Walters – Senior Chaplain


Reverend Gareth Walters was appointed to the position of Senior Chaplain at King’s College in March, 2020. Having undergraduate degrees in English and History, as well as Pastoral Leadership, ‘Rev’ has worked in Anglican church ministry and school chaplaincy since 2005. As a trained spiritual director, Rev has a special interest in conversations about life and faith with young people.

Rev will be familiar to many in the wider King’s community having served for seven years as Assistant Chaplain with Reverend Warner Wilder from 2009 to 2016. Rev’s chief responsibility is the oversight of our Chaplaincy, Religious Studies, involvement in Pastoral Care and the College's engagement with the Community Service it supports. 

Teena Tamati – Religious Studies Teacher and Pastoral Care for Girls


Ms Tamati started at King’s College at the beginning of 2022. She comes from Sacred Heart College, Auckland.

Ms. Tamati teaches Religious Studies and English. She is a Taylor House Tutor and has a new role with Pastoral Care for the Girls here at the College. She is an extra support specifically for girls’ well-being. Ms Tamati helps with the Community Service, Social Girls’ Volleyball and a new co-curricular activity, called ‘the drumming group’.

Ms. Tamati is passionate about Religious Studies as it teaches key values which are universal. Students like to discuss the ‘big’ questions and also explore key values that help students to look at themselves, so they might become the best person they can be… 'there is never a dull moment in class!’
