Board Of Trustees
Emiel Logan, Chairman
2nd term as Chairman, 4th as a Board member.
I have been a member of the Drury School BOT since 2010 when my oldest child started at Drury School. I wanted to take an active role supporting my children and those who assist them in their education. I believe our children’s time at school is essential to their development and growth as individuals. I have also been active in the school, teaching and coaching water polo at Drury School since 2010.
In my day job I am a Senior Sergeant in the New Zealand Police. I am currently a Director on the New Zealand Police Association and the New Zealand Police Welfare Fund. Prior to joining the Police in 1997 I was a primary school teacher in Manurewa. I have a BBS through Massey University and a Diploma of Teaching through Christchurch College of Education.
I am married to Niki who is an Intensive Care Paramedic with the Ambulance Service. We have two children – Kate (Year 10) and Nicholas (Year 8).
I also sit on the Finance, Property, Policy and Personnel sub-committees.

Appointed mid 2018.
Nadine Bell, Parent Representative
1st term on Board.
Married to Peter and lived in Drury for 9 years. We have a daughter in Year 8. I have run our business for over 10 years as over-dimensional load pilots to the Heavy Haulage industry. I have been actively involved in the school’s equivalent to a PTA – Friends of Drury School (FODS) since my daughter started in Year 1. During this time I have served 3 years as Chairperson of FODS.
I have gained a good perspective of the school’s values and goals and want the best for all the students at the school. I feel that all students should have access to a quality education and resources providing them with the chance to achieve to the best of their ability.
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
1st 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).
John Hutchings, Parent Representative
3rd term on Board
I am married to Carly and we have two children – Amy (Year 9) and Evan (Year 7). I have been a member of the Drury School Board of Trustees since 2013. As a Chartered Accountant I have been sitting on the Finance sub-committee, offering my understanding of the accounts and assisting with the cash-flow management and budgeting of the school. Having managed numerous businesses I have had to deal with a diverse range of issues and opportunities and all of the lessons learned from these I bring to the school.
I think we are lucky to have such a dynamic and diverse school just 5 minutes from our home in the country. It is important that we provide a school that is more than a collection of buildings. It’s a place where memories, friendships and morals are forged, where the basis of learning is formed and where our future can live and play in a safe environment. School is a place where our children learn not only about maths, spelling, writing etc. but they learn life skills like how to socialise and how to play.
