Tena koutou katoa. Mihi mahana ki a tatou katoa, nga whanau whanui o te Kura o Matariki – Hello, Greetings to the people and families of Normanby School.
My name is Vicki Roberts. I am mum to two children - Lani who has just started school, son Rico and my partner is Doug. I am currently employed at Fonterra, Whareroa working in the Laboratory.
Over time, I’ve had a passion of sports and through this I have welcomed the idea of giving back to the community. I have found myself actively involved as Premier Coach of Naumai Netball Team, Normanby League Club as President, organiser of Local Netball Competition and organiser of Hawera Touch Module. All very enjoyable and rewarding roles.
I see Normanby as the heart of our community, so having a connection I would like to contribute my time and skills to ensuring the BOT operates legally and ethically in the best interests of all students. We need to ensure all students get a high-quality education that will prepare them to survive and thrive in the world by the time they leave school as well as making enjoyable memories.
Normanby Schools’ values for students to be ‘Respectful, Responsible, Caring, Honest, Creative, Successful and to Persevere’ puts the children in great stead to achieve this with the active support of the Board. These are values at the heart of my everyday employment and community involvement. I am enthusiastic, driven, friendly and approachable. I have the confidence to share my views and contribute, as well as take on feedback and suggestions. I look forward to assisting other trustees on the BOT and supporting the staff to help strengthen our position.
