Board of Trustees
Darryl Wilson - Board Chair - Parent Rep
Hi! I am a Farmer on Black Road married to Maggie (a POM) with two sons Tom and Oliver. I am a volunteer Fireman at Ashley Clinton. I have been Chairman for the last 4 years and found it a very rewarding job. Sherwood School has been through a tough time in recent years but is now on the way to being the best school in Central Hawkes Bay (if not already there!).
I thank the community for having faith and continued support.
Trish Fryer is leading the charge as we, the community, look forward to the 50 year celebrations in 2013. See you there!
Conon Kynoch - Parent Rep
Hi, I am a father of Four Sherwood School pupils. My wife, Jules, and I live on a sheep and beef farm which has been in the family since 1926.
My brothers and sisters and I attended this school in the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s & 00’s. Dad and his siblings all attended Ashley Clinton School. Possibly because of this historical connection to the area, and my belief that the heart of a rural community such as ours is it’s school, I joined an advisory committee in 2006 when the school’s future looked anything but certain in order to help stabilise and rebuild Sherwood School.
Here we are, two boards of trustees later, and I honestly feel our school’s future as a place of educational excellence and the focal point of our community has never seemed brighter. I’m really looking forward to working with our new board and principal to ensure that all our children have the opportunities to be all that they can be. Onwards and upwards!
Brett Nelson - Parent Rep
I am a sheep and beef farmer and along with my family, have been in the area for 7 Years.
My wife Jodie and I have 4 children. Ashleigh and Whitney who are at CHB College and we have two children at Sherwood School - Austin and Noah.
We do enjoy the local community and must say it is one of the friendliest we have been involved with. I am glad to come onto the Board of Trustees, and seeing the great job the previous board have done, feel privileged to be involved in the shaping of Sherwood School.
I am certain a bright future lies ahead for Sherwood.
P.J White - Parent Rep
I have 3 children at Sherwood School, George, Ben, and Rosie. They are all very happy at Sherwood School where they have great friends and fantastic teachers.
We moved to the district a year ago, returning to my husbands family farm. There are many reasons why I wanted to join the Board of Trustees at Sherwood School. I enjoy being part of my children's education and joining the BOT helps me to understand more about the 'how and why' of Sherwood School's education of our children. I believe that Sherwood School has a strong history within the community and I want to be part of the process helping to build the school up again.
The past BOT has done an amazing job and I am confident I can do my part to help them out too. A strong school enables children to be confident learners, and that is what I would like for our children.

I am the Sherwood School Staff Board Trustee. Living in Norsewood, I am married to Kevin and we have two daughters who are both currently studying. This is my 3rd year teaching at Sherwood and this is the 2nd year that I have taught the Year 0-4
I am looking forward to being part of the team that will govern Sherwood School over the next three years to ensure that children at Sherwood School get the education they deserve.
