Our History

Where it all started

In the early 1990’s Barbara Calvert saw the need for providing high quality education for the staff children of Kapuna Hospital.

Long term strategies

What we plan to achieve in the next five years.


1.1  Class levels to remain less than 20 so teacher student ratio is beneficial
1.2  The Junior High School to have capable teachers for each class
1.3  Commence training of Primary School teachers to provide a certificate in teaching.


1.4  A committed National Head Master with a heart to see KLS be the best school in the Province and Nation.  To do this they will need to be well qualified and experienced.  Know how to think outside the box and have skills in working closely with stakeholders.

1.4.1  A qualified person to set up the Primary School Teachers College and Tutors to assist

1.5  All teachers to have a Diploma in teaching and a heart for their children.

Our Teachers

A bit about our teachers

We have a great mix of volunteer and national teachers, who are all passionate about providing quality education for the GCS community. 

School for our staff

Providing quality education at our hospitals means that our staff don’t have to choose between doing the work that they love and giving their children the best education possible.

Investing into our staff kids is really paying off now, with most of the first generation of Kapuna Life School students now working for Gulf Christian Services. The only thing we would change is starting the school earlier.
