King’s Welcomes Dean of Auckland to Its Board

King’s College is pleased to have The Very Reverend Anne Mills join its Board of Governors following her installment as the Tenth Dean of Auckland’s Holy Trinity Cathedral this year.

After gaining a Bachelor of Education and Diploma of Teaching from the University of Waikato, Anne worked as a primary school teacher, including roles in senior management.

Following a spell as Lecturer at the School of Education at the University of Waikato, Anne gained her B. Theol and M.Theol (Hons) from the University of Auckland. She was Priested in 2002 and worked in the parishes of Saint Mark’s, Remuera, Saint Peter’s Cathedral, Hamilton and as Co-Vicar of Chartwell Cooperating Parish, Hamilton before returning to Saint Mark’s as Vicar. Anne has held several Diocesan positions, including being Archdeacon of Waikato.

She has been on the Board of Trustees of Waikato Diocesan School for Girls, and is Chair of their Proprietors Board. She also Chairs the Council for Ecumenism and is on the Executive of the National Dialogue for Christian Unity. She has served two terms on General Synod.

Anne notes that she is delighted to be on the King’s Board. “I look forward to working with the other Board members and the Headmaster,” she says.

Chairman of the King’s Board, Ross Green, says he is looking forward to the valued contributions Anne will make to the College, which has as its spiritual foundations, a strong Anglican ethos.

“Anne’s breadth of experience will add sound spiritual and strategic counsel to the work of the Board of Governors,” says Ross. “Together we work to ensure the College continues to help grow students into well-rounded individuals who are also encouraged to explore their own personal faith and the Anglican tradition.”

“I’d like to also acknowledge the valued contribution of the Very Reverend Dean Jo Kelly Moore who left us at the end of last year following her impressive appointment as Archdeacon of Canterbury in England, a role which also involves being Vice Dean of Canterbury Cathedral”.

The King’s Board of Governors represents a diverse group of Old Collegians who are passionate about ensuring King’s continues to provide the best all-round education in New Zealand.

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>
