Board of Trustees

Naku te rourou nau te rourou ka ora ai te iwi.
With my food basket and your food basket, together we can feed the people.
With my skills and knowledge, and your skills and knowledge we can work together for the good of all.
 
We are fortunate to work in strong partnership with our Board of Trustees for the successful and strategic governance of our school. As a team, they have a diverse skill set and are committed to making this school a fantastic place to learn.

Chairperson & Treasurer

Angela Mangnall
I have been on the Board since August 2013 where I started out as Treasurer. I am a qualified accountant and work for an accounting firm in Nelson. I have experience managing not for profit organisations and contribute these skills to the Tasman School Fundraising Association. Our daughter loved her time at Tasman School. She has now moved to Motueka High School where she ‘sings the praises’ of Tasman School. 

Parent Representatives

Kylie Rush 
I have been a member of the Board of Trustees (BOT) since 2011. I started out as the BOT secretary, then was co-opted on to establish and look after the Fundraising Committee. Then since 2014, I have been involved in one-off projects. I am a trained Primary Teacher and hold a Bachelor of Teaching and Learning. Much of my time is spent helping on our family’s pipfruit orchard in Tasman. My husband Hamish and I have three children currently at the school, Evelyn, Jeremy & Sophie 
Rebekah Fraser
I have been on the Board for two years. I really love being involved with the School and Community and hope I can help to make sure all students are offered the best opportunities during their time at Tasman School. I have been the Chair on the Tasman School Fundraising Association and still remain involved with fundraising events. My husband Nick and I have three children at Tasman School – Bree, Emma and Olivia. The girls love Tasman School and I appreciate the diversity of the teaching staff. 
Sally Lattimore
My two sons are at Tasman School - Leo and Riley. I have been on the Board for 7 years. Early on I was involved with property projects and helping to organise Muddy Buddy. I feel lucky to work with our exceptional teachers and staff, parents and students. Outside of school I am involved with the Nelson Orienteering Club, love getting into the Great Outdoors, running, reading & singing! 
Nathan Ellis
I joined the Tasman BOT in mid 2017 to help provide an input to various projects and maintenance that goes on within the school but have now also been learning about the policies and administration that is required to run the school too. I work in aircraft maintenance at Air NZ where I have worked for 16 years, so between these skills plus experience in quite a few DIY projects I feel I can provide a helpful skill set to the BOT. As a family, my talented wife Melanie works in Richmond and we have 2 children at Tasman School, Declan in Room 4 and Matthew in Room 2. We moved up from Christchurch 2 years ago and are very happy we have found such an awesome, friendly community to be part of. 
Jim Hunter 
After selling our Brisbane photography business in 2011, we moved to Tasman where we have been actively involved in the community. I have hung up my camera and am now employed as an Orchard Foreman for Tasman Fruitpackers where I've been on a big learning curve for the past 4 years. I joined the Board a year ago and I, and my family, get involved in the many events, fundraisers and working bees happening at Tasman School. My wife, Ceiney, chairs the School Fundraising Committee and we have Zoe (11) and Tom (6).
