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 late in 2020.
Mrs Lisa Charles
My name is Lisa Charles and I have been a member of the Enner Glynn School Board since 2020, being appointed the Board Chair at the beginning of 2021.
Being a member of the EGS Board provides me with the opportunity, and privilege, to apply my knowledge and skills to help contribute to the best outcomes of the children, staff and families of the Enner Glynn School community.
I am a Chartered Accountant with over for 16 years’ experience, having worked in both New Zealand and overseas in a mixture of private practice and inhouse roles. I am currently the Financial Controller of the Solander Maritime Group.
My husband Simon and I have two sons, Oliver and Sam, who both attend Enner Glynn School. We love sport in our family, so I also enjoy volunteering my time as a member of the Tasman Rugby Judicial Committee and as a Director of the Nelson Netball Board.
I am always very happy to talk with parents and whānau about any aspect of life at Enner Glynn School, and hope to many more of you through-out the year.
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 13 years and enjoy working with this wonderful community. I am passionate about learning and am undertaking further research in education to complete a doctoral degree through the University of Canterbury.
My wife and I have three children, two at secondary school and one at university. In my spare time, and when I am not studying, I am very involved in cricket coaching (I played at senior club level in various parts of the country for a number of years) and sports administration and leadership. 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 operation 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 extra knowledge about the legislation behind the running and governance of a school in New Zealand.
Mr Mitchell Wilson
Hi, I’m Mitchell Wilson and together with my primary school teacher wife Hayley, we have one son who recently started school in 2022.
As a business owner, I have a wide variety of skills and experience to help serve as your board member. I’m keen to give back to our incredible community which is why I have joined the board, to help ensure all of our kids have the best opportunities available.
I’m a born and breed Nelsonian. I love spending time at home and around our region with my close extended family who all reside nearby.
I’m easy to talk to and always happy to listen regarding all aspects of our Enner Glynn School community, so please say hi or reach out anytime.
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.
Ms Holly Warren
My name is Holly Warren and my partner Andrew and I are delighted to be new members of the wonderful Enner Glynn community, with our daughter Olivia having started in room 6 earlier this year. She will be followed by her sassy younger sister, Matilda, in a little over a year so our relationship with Enner Glynn is set to be enduring.
Formerly a corporate lawyer, I have spent the majority of my career working as a diplomat/international relations specialist for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, which has involved positions as Deputy Head of Mission to both Hong Kong and Hawaii; time spent representing NZ at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva; and work in various other parts of the globe on a broad spectrum of international issues. This has built a range of skills spanning across policy analysis and development; strategic planning; relationship building; advocacy; international trade and political negotiations; communications; event planning; and people, financial and administrative management. I currently work remotely for the Ministry on Pacific regional issues.
It has also ignited a keen interest in governance following time spent on various boards including: The NZ Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong; The American Chamber of Commerce in Auckland; The ASEAN Business Council in Auckland; and various Pacific Island country Chambers of Commerce, also in Auckland. I feel hugely passionate about the opportunity to apply some of this knowledge and skills to the Enner Glynn Board and be a part of building the most positive and inclusive environment possible for our all-important tamariki.
In my spare time, I love a bit of pavement pounding around the streets of Nelson and still fancy myself as a long distance runner; dancing with my girls with gay abandon; bike rides with an obligatory picnic; and making the most of Nelson’s amazing outdoor offerings with my wee whanau. I love to read when time permits and look forward to a little bit of travel in a post-COVID world!
It is my absolute privilege to serve on the Enner Glynn Board and I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible as I embark on this new role.
Mr Saul Gibney
Hello Enner Glynn community. I'm Saul Gibney, one of the Enner Glynn School Board of Trustees.
I have two daughters, one at Enner Glynn School and the other just starting preschool. I feel privileged to be able to give something back to the special place that is Enner Glynn School. The focus on social learning as well as academic learning, small school - big heart culture, and collaboration between parents and teachers are all things that I value about this school.
My background is in Clinical Psychology, where I specialise in areas of child development, neurodevelopmental assessment, disability and child/adolescent mental health. I try to offer these skills where I can to support my role on the board, but also am aware of just how important a vibrant, informed school is for the health and wellbeing of our tamariki. Outside of work I can be found spending time with my partner and daughters (board games nights are popular at our house!), performing musical theatre or playing the local brass band.
If you see me out and about at school please feel free to come up and say hello. I am interested in hearing your views on what you like about our school and any ideas you would like to share about how we can keep growing this school for today and generations to come.
Nga mihi nui.
Mrs Tenielle King
Hi, I'm Tenielle King
I absolutely love working in the office at Enner Glynn School as Office Administrator and Sports-coordinator. I enjoy getting to meet so many wonderful families and being a part of a fantastic community.

Mrs Belinda Koloamatangi
Hi, I'm Belinda Koloamatangi, one of your new BOT representatives.
Together with my Husband Tevita we have two children. Our son who attends Enner Glynn in the Junior School and our daughter will attend in a couple of years.
I was born and raised in Nelson and after having a few stints living overseas following my husband's Rugby career I really appreciate being back in this little piece of paradise we have here in Nelson.
With my son having attended different education facilities around the world it has opened our eyes to how different the education systems and learning is around the world. I feel I have a lot to offer and give towards the direction of Enner Glynn in the years to come.
Myself and my husband are still involved with local sporting teams and play at a high level within the region. Somehow along with running our business we always find time to get out and explore the local activities, walks and cycle tracks that the region has to offer with our 2 kids.
I'm looking forward to meeting more of our amazing Enner Glynn families along the way so feel free to stop me and say hello!!
