Ben Vink is the Assistant Principal – Boarding and Immerse & Inspire at College
Ben is an experienced Dayboy and Boarding Housemaster. As Assistant Principal – Boarding and Immerse & Inspire – Ben leads a pastoral team focussed on delivering our mission – Each boy at his best.
At College for the past 13 years, Ben previously taught in London, and at Timaru Boys’ High School and Christchurch Boys’ High School. He believes relationships developed through boarding are unique and that much is learnt along the way to allow boarding graduates to be well-placed for the adult world ahead.
While each boy’s journey is individual and special, Ben’s goal for the College boarding community is to create a safe, caring ‘home away from home’ environment which allows them to flourish – to be challenged academically, to expand through co-curricular interests, and to grow through wholehearted involvement in the boarding programme itself. He aims for its constant improvement and for the boarding community to focus strongly on the College’s Wellbeing programme which he believes is critical to the students as they progress beyond College.
