Message from the Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees wish to extend a warm welcome to all new pupils and their families to Mt Roskill Primary School. We offer a secure, stimulating, safe and happy learning environment for our children. Mt Roskill Primary School produces successful young achievers every year, which we are very proud of, and we owe a lot to our dedicated staff. We endeavour to create a stimulating learning environment and the strategic plan that is developed in consultation with the staff directs us in developing Active, Engaged, Successful Learners.
The Board, Principal and Staff want to work together with you collaboratively in the development of our children and our school. Mt Roskill Primary School offers a wide range of extracurricular activities along with the core subjects to produce well rounded successful children. You are very welcome to attend our monthly Board meetings which are advertised in the fortnightly school newsletter and we want to know your hopes and aspirations for your children so we can help achieve these goals collectively.
Our Board of Trustees currently consists of six members;
My name is Raj Bhikha. My involvement with the Mt Roskill Primary Board of Trustees started in 2007 some 10 years ago. I am born and bred in Auckland and lived my whole life in the area. My 3 children have all attended Mt Roskill Primary in the past and have now moved on to attend high school at Mt Albert Grammar School and the University of Auckland.
I have a Diploma in Architecture, a Bachelors in Construction Management and a Bachelors in Construction Economics. Professionally I am a Senior Quantity Surveyor for Leighs Construction. I enjoy using my work experience and utilising my Project Management skills on working through Board related issues.
Children, finance, property and staffing matters are amongst the biggest responsibilities for the Board of Trustees. I am pleased to be part of a Board which makes very good informed decisions based on Community consultation and on the detailed data provided by the School Management team. I enjoy providing my services on the Board to help make a difference for our school whilst ensuring every child achieves their true potential.
My Name is Yousef. I am a parent of three students in the Roskill campus. I have obtained my bachelor of engineering (BE) in 2002. Working in multidisciplinary engineering fields preceded my attendance at the University of Auckland where I obtained my masters of engineering (ME) in 2012.
I hold national and international accreditation in mechanical, heavy transport and engineering fields. Currently, I work as a director and senior engineering consultant in an engineering consulting firm. I do have great interest in literature, mathematics, physics, sciences, history, engineering and technology. I believe that progressive and balanced education has a prime role in building and sustaining a great future for the generations to come.
Kia ora. I am Jo Franklin. I am the Staff Trustee on the Mt. Roskill Primary School Board. I have been in the education field for 30 years now and thoroughly enjoy working with children. I believe that every child has the potential to learn and grow, and it is our responsibility as a school to provide a safe, meaningful learning environment to enable students to achieve their best. We have a great culture of learning at our school and I am proud to be a part of it.
