Deputy Housemaster/Mentor Caroline Black This is my seventh year at Christ’s College and my fifth year in Jacobs House. I primarily teach English but have also been involved with the library. I enjoy my role as Deputy Housemaster in Jacobs House. It is a great opportunity to get to know the boys outside my other roles, as well as support our Housemaster, Matt Thatcher. Jacobs House is a fantastic community and I feel very privileged to be part of it. Family makes up a massive part of my life and we enjoy time together at home, travelling around Aotearoa, enjoying a coffee at our local cafe or walking our trio of dogs in the

Cashmere hills or Halswell Quarry. Email : cblack@christscollege.com
