Enner Glynn School Board of Trustees
The Enner Glynn School Board of Trustees is charged with governing the school in line with all legislation and New Zealand Laws. Our Trustees are elected into office in triennial elections in two cycles. The next elections will be held in 2019.
Mrs Katrina Robinson
I’m Katrina Robinson and together with my husband Dan, we have two children here at Enner Glynn School. I just love the community feel of our school and the strong sense of family. It’s a great environment!
By day, I’m a freelance technical writer with a strong creative focus and I love to sink my teeth into a good challenge. I have a working background in administration, marketing and fashion. In my spare time I enjoy running, being creative and plenty of family time.
I’ve been a member of the Institute of Directors for almost two years and also serve on the board of a charitable trust operating mostly in Africa. I’m finding that governance is such a great way to give back and support those working to enhance lives and communities around them. It’s very rewarding!
Within the Enner Glynn School board, I’m serving as vice-chair, sit on our Health & Safety sub-committee and regularly take part in the NZ School Trustee Association (NZSTA) training. I’m passionate about families and seeing people thrive in life, becoming all that they want to be.
Mr Isaac Day
Kia ora tatou. Most of you know me, My name is Isaac Day and I am the current principal of Enner Glynn School. I have been principal here for 10 years and enjoy working with this wonderful community. I am passionate about learning and have recently returned from undertaking research to complete my masters degree in education.
My wife and I have three children, one at primary school and two at high school. In my spare time I am very involved in cricket coaching (I played at senior club level for a number of years) and administration. I also like to read, visit new places, and cook!
My role on the Board is an interesting one, because I am the only Board member who is not elected! This means that I bring expertise on the day to day management of the school and also the Governance matters with supporting the setting of the direction of the school and planning how to achieve this strategy. I am also an accredited New Zealand School Trustees Association trainer and bring a wealth of knowledge about the legislation behind the running and governance of a school in New Zealand.
Mrs Dave Ashcroft
I’m Dave Ashcroft, husband of Victoria and father of three wonderful kids, all of whom attended Enner Glynn School though now only Max is left - in Mr B's class in 2018. (Grace is now at Garin College, and Leo at St Paul's.) I have had the pleasure of serving the Board since 2014, and as Chair since 2016. I am proud to have led significant change for the Board, alongside a highly engaged group of parent representatives. We have overhauled Board practices and the approach to school strategy, and have also been working hard behind the scenes to step-up the Board relationship with teachers, to support Jillian during Isaac’s study leave in 2017, to improve the focus on health and safety, to manage finances, and to work through solutions for rooms 1 and 2 with senior staff and the Ministry.
Professionally I am trained in both accounting and governance. I am a self-employed business advisor and Director, supporting Boards and regional organisations undergoing growth. (Shameless plug for www.addrealvalue.com)
I am known to a number of children in the senior school, and many parents, through attending school camp and helping drop off or pick up our children.
I volunteer for other work in the community, including on the Board at Age Concern Nelson Tasman, the board at Nelson Bays Community Foundation, and as a football coach at Nelson Suburbs.
Mrs Leallen Anderson
Kia ora. Most of you know me as Deputy Principal of the Senior School and a co- teacher in Room 3A, teaching Year 6.
I joined the staff at EGS in 2014 and am proud to be part of our wonderful teaching team. I am also the elected staff representative on the Board (this is the second school BOT I have served on).
I am passionate about teaching and learning and work hard to ensure all children at our school have the best possible chance to achieve and grow, in a supportive and caring environment.
Being on the Board allows me to support our school behind the scenes, bringing the staff perspective to our decision making.
It is a privilege to serve our Enner Glynn School community and one that I thoroughly enjoy.
Mrs Brigid Moffat
Hi, I’m Brigid Moffat and I have been a parent rep on the Enner Glynn School Board of Trustees since 2016. My oldest daughter Freya is Year 8 at Broadgreen Intermediate, Thora is Year 6 and Iris is Year 4, both at Enner Glynn.
I am passionate about education and in particular, providing a safe and positive experience for all students. I am a Specialist Teacher at Maitai School and my role is to teach at different schools supporting teachers and teacher aides working with children with special needs. I also work closely with the Ministry of Education specialist team including physiotherapists, Speech and Language Therapists and Educational Psychologists. I am an advocate for students with special needs and their families, and are always humbled to see the great work out in the community providing for these students.
I enjoy my role on the Board of Trustees and don't want it to end! Not only does it involve regular meetings and readings etc but I am privileged to sit on the interview panel when we interview potential candidates for a teaching role. This has provided me with a great insight into the ‘behind the scenes’ hard work and dedication the team put into this crucial role.
I enjoy spending time with my three daughters and husband, who all keep me very busy, and like to go on walks with friends, movies, theatre, cycling and reading.
Mrs Petra Stolz Baskett
Tena koutou katoa & Grüezi mitenand: I am Petra Stolz Baskett, newly elected as member to the EGS Board of Trustees in 2018. I was born in Switzerland and immigrated to New Zealand twenty years ago. After living for a few years back in my birth country with my Kiwi husband Mark, we settled in Nelson in 2015 to bring up our son Jim who is now in year 2 at EGS. I enjoy working part-time as a clinical nurse specialist at Nelson Marlborough Health. Besides that I am a bit of a “study-holic” which sees me pretty much engaged in some educational course or other for the past 25 years. Every other little time left after that, I learn in the garden, like making things with textiles/fibers and am part of Zenda, a local middle-eastern style dance troupe.
By serving on the Board of Trustees of Enner Glynn School, I would like to contribute my organizational, leadership and quality improvement skills to support the schools strategic and operational management. The main goal putting my energy into being a trustee is to see all our children grow and learn to achieve at the best of their abilities, supported by excellent and happy staff and a supportive family/whanau community working together.
Mrs Jennifer Jack
Hi everyone, my name is Jennifer Jack. Originally from America I shifted to New Zealand in 2003 and have been happily married to Matthew Jack for 10 years. I am the mother of a beautiful year 3 student, Holly, who attends Enner Glynn School.
I work as an Independent Structural Draftsperson and Managing Director at Detailed Design Ltd. Engineering Services, and have been there for 4 years. I am currently working for NCTIR (Kaikoura Infrastructure Rebuild) and Beca Engineering Consulting Nelson, Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland providing structural plans for Construction.
My interests are mainly spending time with my family as much as possible, with a little bit of gardening when I find time and relaxing in the Sounds away from the noise of the city.
My role on the Board is to review the plans in place for future extensions and building projects at Enner Glynn School and to give sound advice when necessary to ensure they are carried out efficiently.
