As part of the Chaplaincy Team David works to support holistic pastoral care for all at the College. This is most overtly expressed through Chapel Services but includes all aspects of College life. David is also responsible for our Religious Education programmes for Years 1 to 13, having taught at all year levels, he now leads the department. 2016 is also David’s second year teaching Theory of Knowledge in the IB Diploma.

After growing up in Nelson and Winton, this true southern man moved to Wellington for university in 2001. After which he worked as the Youth Worker for the Boys’ and Girls’ Institute (BGI). It was through BGI the David first became associated with Scots. As a youth worker David focused on the holistic support of young people, so the opportunity to work developing the All Round Man was a natural progression. David joined the College full time in 2012.

David is a tutor in Glasgow House, is involved with the Pipe Band and loves to engage with those curly questions RE teachers always get.

David is a member of the Jackson 5, the remaining members being his wife and three children. In his spare time he enjoys dabbling on several interments, imagining the fourth dimension and amateur vexillology.
