Board of Trustees
The governing body of our school ‘The Board’ meets monthly at 7pm usually on the third Tuesday of the month in the staffroom.
Parents/caregivers are welcome to attend these meetings. The Board will keep you informed via the school newsletter and welcomes feedback from the school community.

I am from the UK and came to New Zealand for a few years....10 years later I am still here. I have been Chair of the Board since 2016.
I have two children who attend MCS. I enjoy participating in the variety of school events. I also organise and coach the 3/4 netball teams. I have worked in the Finance and Insurance sector for over 15 years.
My experience includes managing business change, IT implementations, legislation changes and running operational teams.
I am very committed to ensuring all children at MCS get the opportunities to achieve to their very best.

Tim Robinson (parent)
I’ve been in Wellington since 1999, and have loved living in Miramar since 2014. Natalie and I have two kids at MCS, and another starting next year. I spend my days as a consultant in the energy sector, an interesting and varied job that lets me spend time with all sorts of people, all around the Asia Pacific region. I’m a committed Christian, an amateur musician, an even more amateur potter, and I love board games.
I’m excited to be part of a board that supports academic achievement, fosters the cultural diversity that makes us special, and helps make MCS a place where everyone wants to be.
Mike Sorensen (parent)
My name is Michael/Mike Sorensen and I’m pleased to be joining the Board of Trustees at Miramar Central School this year. I have lived in Wellington my whole life, the past 7 years have been on the Peninsula. I’m part Maori, and my partner and I have a daughter at MCS, who is currently in year 2.
I’ve worked in various Government positions over the last 9 years. Some of these roles have allowed me to work with and support a number of Pacific Island countries and ethnic communities. I believe the cultural diversity we have at MCS is a taonga to be celebrated.
Outside of work, I enjoy sport and DIY, although I would not claim to be particularly good at either! I want to support the school to be a place where children can learn, excel and gain the confidence to push themselves, but most importantly, for it to be a place they enjoy.
My name is Nureddin Abdurahman. I am the proud husband of Keriya, and the father of Rayyan and Sumaya who are currently in room 9 and 13 respectively. I am originally from Africa; Ethiopia and I have lived in Wellington for the last eleven years. I currently drive a taxi for a living. I love football and support Arsenal. I have experience in leadership and governance across the community and NGO sectors. I am pleased to be joining the diverse hard-working Board of Trustees at Miramar Central School. I joined the Board of Trustees to show the mutual feeling of belonging in the wider community, to give back to the community and most of all I want to play my role in supporting the school to be a place where children can reach their potential.
