Founded in 1973 by a small group of pioneering parents determined to maintain an independent school on Auckland’s North Shore, Kristin has grown from just 62 pupils into one of New Zealand’s leading independent schools. Its first few years were spent in a disused health camp in Campbells Bay. When it moved to its Albany campus in the late 1970s it was surrounded by apple orchards and strawberry fields. Today, Kristin boasts more than 1800 students and occupies more than 20 hectares in what has become a popular suburb of Auckland. State-of-the-art facilities sit alongside welcoming clusters of original Lockwood classrooms. The school is a trailblazing success story, having introduced the International Baccalaureate to New Zealand in the mid-1980s and in the 1990s becoming the earliest adopter of the now popular junior, middle and senior school learning model. This detailed and beautifully designed book, published to commemorate Kristin’s 50th jubilee, records the incredible story of the school’s first half-century, providing an authentic account of the events that have shaped the school into what it is today.
