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.
Kia Ora, I’m Marie and this will be my 4th year as a trustee for Owhata Primary.
|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
