Aramoana House Dean

Kia Ora Koutou. My name is David Nicholson. I started teaching here in 1999 as Head of the Physical Education department and assistant science teacher. I have been involved in the sports and EOTC programme because this was my area of expertise at Christchurch teachers training college after graduating from Otago University. I have three children, two at Queen Charlotte College, and firmly believe that a coeducational college of this size in a supportive community can offer the best opportunities for a student to develop the skills and aptitude to succeed at anything after leaving school.

Tamahine House Dean

Tēnā koe. Ko Andy Sykes toku ingoa. My lovely wife Kirsty and I have lived in Marlborough for two years now and we absolutely love the place. It already feels like home to us and we adore bringing up our daughter Maddy in this wonderful environment. Kuini Harata is a great place to work and I am thoroughly enjoying my job as Dean of Tamāhine house. It is my job to help support the learning of all ākonga at QCC and I believe that this is best done by forming strong, mutually respectful relationships with all staff and students. Outside of school I enjoy travelling, boating, most sports and other outdoor activities with my whānau.

Student Leadership


The student council is a collaboration of different individuals and personalities that each offer a unique contribution, to benefit the students of Queen Charlotte College. The student council provides students with a challenging leadership role within the school, allowing them to demonstrate ownership and develop their skills as leaders. Already, the council committees have come together, each forming their own ambitions to contribute to a productive school year. This year, as a council, our main priority is to ensure that the concerns and needs of the school body are voiced to the teachers and senior management, resulting in action. Ultimately, the council this year wants to set a legacy; collectively we can achieve great things. Ake Tonu – Never Give Up.


The Peer Support Team is a group dedicated to helping others. They are the school body’s shoulder to lean on. These students have been trained to deal with many issues that teenagers may be faced with. Each student possesses his/her own unique skills that allow them to attend to many different situations they may encounter with certain areas being stronger than others.
