Taryn Naidoo

Staff Elected Representative


My name is Kimiora McKenzie-Downey and this is my first term as a parent trustee on the Hingaia Peninsula School Board of Trustees. My partner and I have two sons currently in Years 2 and 3 at Hingaia Peninsula School. I joined the Board of Trustees because I felt that through my previous career experience in the banking industry I could make a useful contribution to the strategic direction and governance of the school. I believe that all children should be given the opportunity to learn in the way that best meets their needs and enables their success - being on the Board of Trustees enables me to play a part in the achievement of this goal.


Taryn is our staff representative on the 2019-2022 BoT. She currently teaches in TItoki Studio with our Year 4 learners.

Simon Mowday

Parent Elected




Hi, I am Simon Mowday, I have had an association with the school as a parent since 2012, with three boys having been at the school. I am a second term elected parent representative and my motivation for being on the Board is to see the school realise it's potential as both a learning environment and a community centric resource. My professional background is in supply chain leadership in both the public and private sector. I have enjoyed seeing the growth of the Karaka residential areas and excited by the opportunities this brings our children.
