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; I am married to Simon and we have two sons, Oliver and Sam who are both at Enner Glynn School. 

I have been a qualified Chartered Accountant for 14 years, which has provided me with the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills and experience in the profession.  I am a Manager in the Specialist Tax Advisory team at Findex and have been there since returning from working overseas 9 years ago.

As a family we are actively involved in sport, with all four of us playing a number of summer and winter sports.  I am a New Zealand qualified Netball umpire and umpire coach, and a member of the Games Officials Committee for the Nelson Netball Centre which supports the development of netball officials.

Being a member of the Board of Trustees provides me with the opportunity, and privilege, to apply my skills and experience to contribute to the best outcomes for the children, staff and families of Enner Glynn School, and to our wider school community. 

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 am undertaking further research in education to complete a doctoral degree through the University of Canterbury.

My wife and I have three children, one at primary school and two at high school.  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.

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 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.

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.

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 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.
