Peter Wilding

I am married to Rachel, the International Director at KingsWay School and our three children have completed their schooling at KingsWay. Having been connected with KingsWay for more than two decades, we have seen the benefits of Christian Education and are committed to seeing this opportunity continue for other Christian families.

While receiving a quality education throughout their years at KingsWay our children were also encouraged to see the world and their futures in it through the loving and redeeming eyes of their Heavenly Father. This same insight and encouragement is fostered with each child who attends KingsWay School through the deliberate intention of a highly committed, God fearing and passionate staff.

I have served as a Board member at KingsWay School in the last three Board terms and as Board Chair for the last two terms. A highlight my time on our board has been the delivery a comprehensive 10 year strategic growth and development plan for the school, which after substantial consultation with our school community and stakeholders, commenced in 2018. This plan is serving us well by enabling the design of a strategic build program for new or improved facilities, new curriculum options, a structured expansion for new student enrolments and a comprehensive staff development program to be put in place. All this is underway while ensuring our school remains in a strong financial position to ensure we can continue deliver quality education and embedding our Christian special character through all that we do.

I was a senior manager in the New Zealand Fire Service in a 34 year career and have served on boards of several non-profit trusts, organisations and churches.  I currently serve as a trustee on the KingsWay Trust which provides the land and buildings for KingsWay School and three other Christian schools in Auckland.

I regularly attend a Christian fellowship in West Auckland and seek to see God’s Kingdom extended wherever we walk as his disciples.
