Celebrating Long Service

There are many people working in our Member Schools who have served their school community in different roles over many years, making a significant long-term contribution to the life of their school. At ISNZ, we like to celebrate the commitment of these long-standing staff members. 


Kevin Taylor, Saint Kentigern College

Kevin Taylor

Kevin Taylor has given 30 years of service to Saint Kentigern College. He joined the College in February 1988 as a ‘Form 1’ (Year 7) teacher, and in the intervening 30 years, he has impacted positively on the learning, growth and character of countless young students in his care.

In 2005, Kevin was appointed as Head of Year 7 & 8, overseeing the pastoral wellbeing and academic progress of both girls and boys at these year levels. This is a role he continued when the College transitioned from a single College to separate Middle and Senior Colleges at the start of 2017.

Kevin has had many significant additional roles over the years including Teacher in Charge of Tennis for a number of seasons, and since 2001 he has been the College Bus Coordinator, organising the smooth flow of students on and off campus each day. The annual Year 7 camp is a highlight for all students and this is a result of his leadership and organisation.

Kevin is highly respected by staff and students alike and his calm manner, wisdom and compassion is greatly appreciated within our College Community. Saint Kentigern College thanks him for his 30 years of dedicated service and looks forward to his continuing contribution to the life of the College.
