Nelson Central School Board Of Trustees 2018

Tēnā koutou and greetings from your newly elected Board of Trustees. We wanted to let you know who we are, and to really encourage you to make contact with any of us if you have any questions or concerns about the school. The Board of Trustees has overall responsibility for the running of the school, so it is crucial that we know what our parents think. Email us:

Dr Bradley Hannigan – Chairperson Parent RepresentativeI have been on the Board since being co-opted on in mid-2012, and Chairperson since the beginning of 2013. My daughter Lily has attended Nelson Central since late 2012, and my youngest son Otis is waiting in the wings at Brook Street Kindergarten. I think Nelson Central is a fantastic school with amazing teachers, excellent management and a wonderful setting. I work as a Senior Education Advisor for Nelson Tasman Kindergartens, and I am a Doctor of Philosophy in Education. I am pleased to be involved with the Board and humbled by the opportunity to serve as Chairperson. This is a great school and it is an honour to be involved.
      Ian Challenger – Parent Representative I have had the privilege of being a parent representative on the school board since 2013. All three of my children have attended Central School. My daughter Eva, now the last of my children to attend. When I'm not involved with activities for the board, I run a business called Future Challengers, that helps organisations with their sustainability issues. Nelson Central is a great school with wonderful committed staff and a fantastic community. I am excited to continue my role on the board and look forward to working with a group of dedicated people who all want to make a positive contribution to the school.
