My name is Chris James and I am the Head of Outdoor Education and Sport

I have been with Waihi School since January 2022.  I have moved from the UK with my wife and children and I absolutely love the interaction and activity I get to undertake every single day with the awesome students here.  My favourite subject at school was Outdoor Education and it still is - I hope that my passion for the outdoors will be passed along and start a life long love of the enviroment we live in.  Outside of school I am a keen hunter, fisherman and I enjoy keeping fit by expoloring the beautiful New Zealand back country.
