Kia ora Whanau. I am married to Allison and we have six children, three who have attended Owhata Primary. I was seconded on to the Board as a parent representative when my two youngest girls attended Owhata Primary, this was over 9years ago now and I have seen the school develop and improve in many areas through very good Management and Board Governance during this time.
Bob Stiles – Principal.
|Kia ora koutou,|
I’m Mary the newest kid on the block recently co-opted onto the Board of Trustees. It is a pleasure to be part of such a dedicated group of people.
As a parent of the School I see this as an amazing opportunity to contribute towards the School’s success in providing the very best educational opportunities, experiences and memories for our tamariki, whanau and wider community.
I look forward to digesting the mahi identified for the coming year and meeting, greeting and “getting to know” our whanau, staff and Board members better.
Mauri ora, Mary Nicholas
I have been a teacher at Ōwhata School for over 30 years and also attended it as a child. I am passionate about our kura and have seen many changes over the years and am proud to have been part of this development. I was the Staff Representative for 6 years many years ago so have a little experience of how they work. We are lucky to have a dedicated group of parents who wish to serve on our Board and I look forward to working with them.
I am the Associate Principal and work out of the office 1 day a week. I am the Leader of the Middle School (years 3 and 4) and also teach the Year 4’s in Room 8.
