Here are the current members of the school's Board of Trustees. Please don't hesitate to catch us in the playground or contact any of us directly if there's anything you'd like to talk about, or if you have any questions for board members.

Robyn McInnes.

I have two children at CDPS, Jacob and Alice, who are both in Mokomoko Pod.  I also have an older daughter Kate who is now at secondary school. Our family has been part of CDPS since 2010.  We choose to send our children to school at Crofton Downs because we love the school, its values, the people who make up the community, and the way our children are treated with care and respect as individuals.  I joined the Board of Trustees in 2013 and I have been Chairperson since January 2016. I am at school nearly every day for pick-up or drop-off and I’m always happy to chat, so feel free to come and say hello.

My children, Tom and Imogen are loving their time at Crofton Downs - it's a great school with a fantastic spirit, and it's a privilege to make a contribution to the school as a member of its board of trustees. I'm around on Tuesdays and Fridays for school pick-ups and I'm always happy to chat with fellow parents.

I am Mum to Phoebe (Year 6) and Liam (Year 4) and since moving to Crofton Downs Primary School we have found the quality of education, organization and leadership of the school to be amazing. I’m very pleased to be able to contribute to this with my professional skills as a parent representative on the Board. I’m always keen to hear from the community about their experiences of our fantastic school and am around at school pick-up most days for a chat.

My husband Greg and I have lived in Crofton Downs for over 11 years. Our two boys, Ollie (Year 4) and James (Year 3) Sharland have been at Crofton Downs Primary school since their first day of school and they have thrived within the school environment. I have a tremendous passion for the school and the local community and think there is a fantastic variety of people from all walks of life, who all add to the wonderful fabric of the local community. I have a background in finance and accounting and am pleased to be able to use my knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to help provide a great platform for learning for the children. I am usually at school during pickup times and if there is an issue you would like to raise, I am always keen for a coffee and a chat!

My children are Pablo Miguel (year 4) and Alejandro (year 3). We enjoy Crofton Downs because of its warm, friendly, family-oriented atmosphere and approach to teaching that respects children as individuals. While on the Board I hope to respect those values and ensure that the school remains one of which we can all be proud. I have a background in diplomacy and enjoy working in a collaborative way to reach decisions that respect the wishes of as many people as possible. I'm usually around school each day at drop-off time.

Kia ora, I joined the BOT in January of 2018 and am looking forward to the challenge of helping make our school be the best it can be. I have four children at CPDS: Emily, Sofia, Georgia and Luke and we love the size and community feel at the school. My wife Bronwyn is often around the school too, helping out on trips and with reading programmes. A vet and farmer, I work at Landcorp/Pamu Farms of New Zealand overseeing the running of a group of farms in the East Coast and lower North Island.
