Board Member - Health & Safety Portfolio
Ni Sa Bula,
My name is Deron Sharma. My younger sister, Dhisha Sharma, attends Te Totara Primary School as a student of Marama 13.
I am currently in my final year of a Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Engineering conjoint degree, whilst working for Waipa District Council.
Te Totara Primary School is blessed to have an engaged community, passionate teachers, and a vision for growing together. BOT members are responsible for the governance of the school, which must ensure that the things that make our school great remain, whilst catering to the challenges presented by the needs of the future. What I bring to this role is a fresh perspective. having gone through New Zealand's education system during NZQA's strategic frameworks alignment. I have a vested interest in advocating for accessible, quality education, which our school does an excellent job of providing. I also represent the voice of a parent who wants to ensure that the school has adequate support and resources in moulding our kids into Te Totara STARS. I have been helping out with the PTA for the past two years, and have decided to take a step further into the Te Totara community by being on the BOT. I have my executive experience with the Hamilton Youth Council and Waikato University Fijian Students' Association to offer this role. Above all, I bring, to this role, my love for children and my love for seeing children succeed, which has previously led me to roles of youth leader and kid's church teacher.
