Kim Wright

Taranaki Diocesan School for Girls

My name is Rev. Kim Wright and I am the school chaplain at Taranaki Diocesan School for Girls in Stratford, Taranaki. We are a small, integrated school that sits at the base of Mount Taranaki. The size and special character of our school create a sense of whānau where our students are known and journeyed alongside during their Year 9 to Year 13 school years.

I arrange Chapel services (with the help of our Chapel Team), provide Religious Education to our junior students, and offer pastoral care to the school body. I enjoy the diversity of the role and the varied opportunities to engage with students around their faith-based questions and spiritual growth.

I was ordained in 2019 and have recently completed my theology degree. Outside of school, I am busy trying to keep up with my active family. We all enjoy the bush and beaches that the region has in abundance.
