Board of Trustees
Nick Cairns, Chairperson
My name is Nick Cairns; I am married to Cindy and father of three daughters, Madison, Caitlyn and Neave, we have lived in Rolleston since mid 2010.
During my professional life, I began as a teacher, then moved to the private sector, holding senior Sales, Marketing and Operation management positions within several large consumer food companies, which eventually led to acquiring and running our own national branded foods business.
I currently work providing Sales and Marketing services to Shape NZ, an innovative technology business based in Addington.
I appreciate the opportunity as a member of the BOT to apply my relevant skills and experience to contribute to the best outcomes for Clearview Primary, its students, staff and community.
Ngaire Shepherd-Wills, Deputy Chair, (Community Relations/Personnel/Policy)
I was a teacher for fifteen years, including four years at Clearview. I am passionate about future focused education and lifelong learning. Currently I work as a Professional Learning Facilitator for Core Education, a non-profit organisation whose vision is “Pushing the Boundaries of Educational Possibility.”
Emma Hodgkin, Property
Kate Worner, Finance
Fiona McAlevey, Health & Safety
I live in Rolleston with my beautiful family – Sharon, Grace and Alex. We have lived here since 2012, having moved from Christchurch. Grace and Alex both attend Clearview and thoroughly enjoy their friends, teachers and experiences here.
I work as an early childhood education lecturer with students all around New Zealand. It is a privilege to see my students’ knowledge and skills develop and grow. Their love of learning is very inspiring and it helps to motivate me in my own study towards an EdD qualification.
I see my role on the Clearview Primary Board of Trustees as a wonderful opportunity to give something back. I look forward to many adventures supporting the Clearview community.
