Board Of Trustees
1st term as a Board member.
I am husband to Ange and father of Olivia (Year 3) and Charlotte (soon to be Year 0). I am currently employed as the Chief Flying Instructor at Ardmore Flying School where I have been working for the last 18 years. I am a member of the management team which oversees this multi-million dollar business, as well as 50 staff and 250+ students. My family come from a school-teaching background with my mother, sister and mother-in-law all being primary school teachers.
Since our first daughter started at Drury School, Ange and I have become active members in the school activities – taking over the famous Calf Club Day ‘sausage sizzle’ and the ‘Meet the Teacher BBQ Evening’.
Robyn Malcolm, Principal
Appointed mid 2018.
Joanna (Jo) Bellis, Parent Representative
1st term on Board.
I am married to Cae and we have two daughters – Charlotte (Year 5) and Lucy (Year 2).
We have lived in Papakura for the past 11 years since our return from 10 years in the UK, though my family have farmed and lived in Drury since the 1930’s. I work for online accounting software company Xero, working with Job Management and costing software owned by Xero.
I have been actively involved with the Friends of Drury School (FODS) – the school’s PTA – since my eldest daughter was in Year 1, running the Sweets and Balloons stall at Calf Club Day and supporting other initiatives where I can.
I love spending as much time as possible with my family, as well as long bush walks with our two dogs, swimming and crochet.
Paul Rohloff, Parent Representative
3rd Term on the Board.
I spent the early part of my working years in management/buying for a nationwide retail chain. For the last 20 years I have owned my own importing businesses.
I joined the BOT as I felt my skill set could assist the school. I was also interested in the way a school Board operates and am keen to help the Board further improve the experience the children enjoy at school.
We have three children, Matthew (Year 13) and Ashley (Year 10) who attended Drury School and are now at college, and Brooke in Year 3 at Drury School.
I also sit on the Property Committee.
Mark Bolton, Parent Representative
2nd term on Board.
I have been a member of the local Papakura and Drury community from the time I first arrived in the region in 1984 when I was posted as a young artillery gunner to 161 Battery at Papakura Camp. I met my wife, Cyndi Paterson, just before I left the army in 1986 and we now reside in Ponga Road in her original family homestead. Our son Hamish is now in Year 5.
I have been involved in the waste and recycling industry for the last 15 years and now work for the Ministry of Defence. Throughout my career I have had plenty of exposure to corporate business and how they operate. I have worked with numerous people across all types of business and industry.
Apart from enjoying spending as much time as possible with my family, my other interests extend to two-wheeled modes of transport (mountain bikes, motorcycles etc).
