Mark is a Sales Manager for Bayleys Real Estate, managing the Waikato Rural team.
I have lived in the Fencourt area most of his life; attending Goodwood School myself when there was a school roll of 24 children.
I am married to Kaye, and we have two sons. Our eldest son Mitchell attends Cambridge Middle School, and our youngest son Luke is in Year 6.
I am an agriculture contractor. Prior to contracting I was dairy farming on Flume Road. When not at school or work, I can be found with a rod in my hand, kicking a ball around and playing social cricket.
I am a very active parent in the school community. Over many years I have coached my eldest son’s rugby team, and am regularly involved in many other activities at school.
As a parent I firmly believe success at school is not just about national standards and sporting achievements. It is also about developing kids learning, forming strong friendships, and about excelling in all they choose to do. This could not be achieved without the support from the fantastic teaching and support staff, and the PTA. The governance structure at Goodwood supports education and everything that happens in and around the school environment.
I was elected to the Board of Trustees in 2013 and held the buildings and property portfolio. I have had significant involvement in some schools key projects such as new teaching block build, new carpark build, AstroTurf and most recently the successful Goodwood Trail Ride.
As a newly appointed member to the Goodwood BOT in 2016 I look forward to the opportunity of providing governance and ultimately a wonderful environment for your children to learn, grow and achieve !!! As Sandra mentioned we are honored to work with, and alongside, a great team of people that have incredible skills, passion and knowledge to shape our Goodwood Explorers into lifelong learners and contributors.
Having moved to Cambridge from the Hawke’s Bay in early 2016 we are embracing the positive and inspiring place it is. Myself, and my husband Ian, have 3 children, of which 2 have enjoyed the fantastic opportunities Goodwood has to offer. Oliver Y9 and Charlie Y7 both attend St Peters, Charlie was fortunate to spend Y6 at Goodwood in 2016 and embraced all opportunities and built some wonderful friendships. Holly, currently Y5 takes every opportunity to become involved with extra-curricular activities, loving the recent addition of Kapa Haka.
As a family we are actively involved in Rugby and Netball with both Ian and I coaching school teams. We are also involved in Tennis, Mountain Biking, Surfing, Water Skiing – being involved with sport is a key priority, great medium to have fun and enjoy new friendships.
I was recently appointed as the Regional Facilities Advisor for Sport Waikato, this role works very closely with local authority to identify current and look at future sporting and recreational facility requirements within the greater Waikato – an exciting role in an ever expanding and progressive region. With Ian’s involvement in the rural sector, Area Manager for FMG, we have a strong affinity with all things rural of which is at the heart of Goodwood School.
