My connection with Windley school goes all the way back to 1979 when my family moved here from wellington and I enrolled into Windley school. All 5 of my children have been through Windley with my eldest son having the honour of been head boy.I’ve had the privilege of been on the school board for at least the last 5yrs which has been a amazing experience. I love the opportunity of learning governance and procedure which until joining this amazing board has always been a foreign concept
