Tracey Martin is the Board Chair. In her first term on the Board she held the Policy Portfolio, Finance Portfolio, been a member of the Discipline Committee and held the position of Board Chair.
Coming from a home with a Primary School Teacher mother and a Teaching Principal sister, she has a broad understanding of the leadership required from the Board of Trustees and the benefits that a respectful working partnership between the Board, Principal, school staff and their parent community can have for a school.
School holidays were spent with grandparents in the Hawkes Bay, interacting with extended family and whanau, on and around Taupunga Marae at Waimarama also gave her an appreciation of tikanga Maori and deep pride in our uniqueness as a nation and a community.
Tracey views the role of Board member very seriously. If she demands that the teachers educating her children be professional in all aspects of her child's education then those teachers deserve no less from her in all aspects of governance. To that end, over the past six years, Tracey has taken extensive professional development to better implement her role as a Trustee.
Tracey's husband, Ben, and her have one child at Warkworth Primary School with two older sons attending Mahurangi College. She has just completed a second term on the Board of Trustees at Warkworth Primary School. She believes her experience on the Primary School Board helped prepare her for the complexities and work load here at the College.
In her opinion Mahurangi College is in good health and that we, as a community, are on the right track with respect to providing the best possible opportunities and outcomes for the majority of our young people. Tracey welcomes the opportunity to work with the management, staff and community of Mahurangi College to continue to improve communication and systems that enhance the outcomes for all Mahurangi College students.
