A Note from Dan Reddiex

Dear Old Boy

It is with mixed emotions that I am communicating my decision to take up the role of Principal at Dilworth School in Auckland from term 2, 2019.

It has been my privilege to be the Rector of King’s High School for the past ten years. I have poured myself into our school and the lives of the young men I have had the joy of working with and for. I have forged lifelong friendships with many of the outstanding people that have historically and currently make up the superb teaching and support staff at King’s. For all that I have given I received so much more in return.

I am sincerely grateful for the generous support of the Old Boys and the many ways in which you contribute to the school. I look forward to catching up with those of you who live locally in the months ahead.

I can only hope that my Dilworth experience will be as rewarding and enjoyable as the time that I have spent at King’s.

Dan Reddiex

Our 2012 Dux continues his academic successes

Otago Daily Times 2012 Class Act Award Winner and 2012 Kings Dux, Shaun Markham has graduated from the University of Otago with a master of economics degree, with distinction.

He was born with athetoid cerebral palsy, which affects his speech and fine motor skills.

But while the condition was ‘‘part of me, it doesn’t define me’’, he said.

King’s teacher Garry Kyle taught him economics throughout his five years at school.

Mr Markham showed his ‘‘potential and determination in his first week’’, by ‘‘ditching his wheelchair and practising for weeks’’ until he could ‘‘walk independently up the stairs’’ between floors in the classroom blocks.

‘‘Each year, his skills and performance increased [in economics].

‘‘We have kept in touch throughout his university career and it has been a great delight to watch his progress,’’ Mr Kyle said.

Mr Markham also loves sport and athletics and competes regularly in shot put and discus.

A keen cricket fan, he also came on as a bowler during a university staffstudent cricket game last year.

National U14 Boys Basketball

Congratulations also to Y9 Oscar Cameron who has been selected in the National U14 Boys Basketball Squad to tour Melbourne from the 7th – 12th of June 2018.

Oscar was selected for this tour team from the recent National U14 Talent Development Camp held in Rotorua in the April school holidays. This is the start of the Development Pathway, and is part of a 6-Year Junior Programme with the focus on developing our young athletes into the country’s future stars.

80 athletes from all over New Zealand attended the camp, with only 20 gaining the opportunity to travel.
