Dear Parents and Caregivers of Takapuna Grammar School,

We are excited to announce that we have a newly appointed school Board of Trustees, who were welcomed in by the Principal and outgoing Chair last week. At this meeting a new Chair and Deputy Chair were also elected.

Your Board Representatives are;

Mary Nixon, Principal
Penny Harrison, Chairperson
Russell Malone, Deputy Chairperson
Tim Williams
Matt Hopkins
Tresna Hunt
Gillian Weir
Haider Khan
Rosemarie Close, Teacher Representative
Taylor Wheeler, Student Representative
Mark Te Kani, Whanau Community Representative
Austen Kernohan, Chair of Finance Committee
Hans Soul Lee, Asian Community Representative
Helen Littlewood, Co-opted to Planning Committee

This group are a strong mix of existing and new faces for the Board. All of these people bring a wonderfully diverse and rich range of skills and experience, many of them having served on other school boards, with strong community connections outside the school. They all share in common intention and passion for ensuring we create an environment that supports students being their best. For further information about the board members please see

We would also like to thank the outgoing trustees Vivien Kirk (previous Chair) and Claire Sinnema for the fantastic contributions to the School.

Thank you for taking the time to vote and create a strong governance team for the school. We look forward to working with you and will be in touch soon to share highlights to ensure you keep connected to our work.

Best wishes,

Penny Harrison
Takapuna Grammar School
