The Boarding Team

Pyne House (our boarding house) is run by the Housemaster who has responsibility for all that goes on in the house.  There are two tutors who help out each evening.  A key part of the boarding experience is the care provided by the Matrons.

 

Name: Nathan Dickson
Position: Housemaster
Email: housemaster@waihi.school.nz

Nathan lives on-site and joins Waihi coming from a background in Boys Secondary schooling and a University Residential College in Dunedin. He is a strong advocate for Boys education and boarding, and demonstrates the qualities needed to support and foster young men to reach their full abilities in life outside school. He has a business degree in Human Resource Management, which alongside his boarding house background and rural/corporate upbringing, provide strong foundations for our boys. When not at Waihi, Nathan enjoys tennis, running, supporting rowing, exploring cafes and restaurants, and getting away to Wanaka or Central Otago.

 

Name: Judy Heywood
Position: Matron
Email: matron@waihi.school.nz

Judy is our weekday Matron. She is a mother of four and a grandmother of five, so she has had vast experience with children and they are her passion. Before coming to Waihi School, she worked as a Clinical Associate in the Surgical Ward at Timaru Public hospital. When she is not at Waihi, she enjoys spending quality time with her children and grandchildren, as well as gardening, volunteering, craft, reading and knitting. 

 

Name: Louise Horne
Position: Weekend Matron
Email: matron@waihi.school.nz

Louise joins us on the weekends. She is a mother and a grandmother, who has an air of grace around the boarding house. She loves nothing more than supporting the boys in their weekend activities and looking after them. During the week, she operates a clothing store with her husband, and enjoys reading, various social activities, volunteering and good food.
