Our Educator

Jonny Thompson

Jonny has taught at primary schools in Kāpiti, Wellington and Singapore. He is an advocate of student voice and diversity, and a big believer that learning should engage and empower. He loves that Team Harold Members are curious, respectful, and proud of their identity.

Jonny has a background in drama, writing, and video and film production. He’s kept busy by his two young children and their shared thirst for adventure. Exploring our region’s stunning surroundings and inventing games are at the top of their play list.

Our local sponsors

Kapiti Horowhenua Life Education Trust would like to say “thank you” to all our major sponsors and supporters. It is our vision to see as many primary school children in the Kapiti-Horowhenua region as possible and teach them key fundamental life skills. Thank you all so much for helping to put smiles on the faces of our young children. You are all amazing!
