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.

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 Leallen Anderson
Staff Trustee

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.

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
Minute Secretary

Hi, I am Tenielle King, I have three wonderful boys 13, 11 and 3.
