Mr C Moller

College Principal

Ngā mihi mahana kia koutou katoa.
A warm welcome to you all.

My name is Chris Moller and I am the Tumuaki of Queen Elizabeth College.

I base my educational philosophy on 30 years of working in schools, both in New Zealand and overseas. I come from a small town, worked many jobs as a teenager and succeeded at national level in sports giving me an insight into sacrifice, fun and pain!

I am married to Isabel and have three children. I have taught from years 2 to 13 so have a good grasp of the developmental stages of children and teenagers. I have been working in the management of secondary schools for nearly 20 years.

I personally love my sport and delight in watching my former pupils and team members succeed at All Black, Super and provincial rugby. I coach the under 15 rugby team at QEC and support as many activities as I can within the College. We believe in restoring relationships when we can but also have a very grounded view of right and wrong and being accountable for actions.

We welcome visits from the community, so come and meet with us, see how we can help your whanau on the next stage of their journey to be ready for life.

Principal Chris Moller said the school had received a significant increase in funding through the change to the new equity index. Read More
