Meet the Board of Trustee Members - Dylan Kiriona

Post Date: 15 Aug 17       Category

Each month in our Board Chairs update we profile a Board of Trustees member.  This month we have parent representative Dylan Kiriona.

Tēnā koutou katoa,

My name is Dylan Kiriona and I descend from Ngāti Raukawa and Ngāti Huia. I am a Parent Representative on the Board of Trustees as well as the Finance Committee and am an active whanau member of Rangatahi Ora. My wife Laurae Broughton-Kiriona and I have 5 children with 2 of them currently attending Horowhenua College. I am currently a Primary School Teacher at Levin East School and am actively involved in Kapahaka as well as coaching a range of sporting codes.

It has been a pleasure to represent whanau on the board and work with an amazing and committed team under great leadership. The range of skills and experience that each member brings to the table ensures that issues are viewed from a variety of perspectives. We focus on providing the best possible resourcing so that teachers can be effective in their roles to facilitate a quality education to ensure our students excel. We are proud of the school's many achievements and wish to acknowledge the dedication and generosity of so many on a day to day basis because as we all know, it takes a village to raise a child. Our role as a board, is simply to share the load with management and staff, and to pave the way for our future generations to be successful young men and young women. Ko ngā rangatahi o te rā nei, Ngā rangatira mō āpōpō.

Nāku noa
