Viv Townsend - Staff Representative

Hello everyone,

My name is Viv Townsend and I am a year 1/2 teacher here at Tairangi School. I have been on the Board of Trustees since 2014. I am married with two sons and we all work and study in NZ. I like to read and do outdoor activities like walking and fishing. I love going into Wellington for all the great things that go on there. I have a lifestyle block that keeps me very busy at weekends and during the holidays.




Soozie Trego - Elected Board Chair

Kia orana tatou katoatoa,

I was co-opted as Parent rep in April 2014 then Board Chair in October 2014 before being elected in the latter position in February 2015. I was a previous Board member in 2007/2008.

I am married to Ray To'o and we have had all our five children attend Tairangi School. I spend most of my time being the chauffeur, masseuse, cheerleader, lunch lady and Eftpos machine for my children during the week but more so during our busy sports-mad weekends of basketball, rugby and athletics. I am an old Tairangi School student and look forward to leading an enthusiastic bunch of Board members for the next few years.


Analisa Kawenga Elected Parent Representative

Kia ora,

My name is Ana Kawenga and I have been a Board of Trustees member at Tairangi School since 2013. I have two high school children and I am a new entrant teacher at Saint Pius X School in Titahi Bay. My interests are outdoor activities including walking, running, climbing and I enjoy reading. One interesting fact about me is I am a sci-fi fan.



Janet Seiuli Elected Parent Representative

Talofa lava,

My name is Janet Seiuli but most people call me Neta. I have been a BOT member since 2013. My hobbies include spending time with my family, especially supporting my children with their sports. My favourite hobbies are playing indoor/outdoor netball and attending church.
