Board of Trustees

Chairperson 

Valerie Vui

I joined the Board in 2016 as a Proprietor’s Representative and in the same year was elected as Finance Chair.  I was elected Chairperson of the Board in March 2018.

My other duties include Chair of the school Fundraising Sub-Committee, and Director of St Joseph’s School Alumni Association which was established in August 2017.

As Chairperson, I sit on all the Board Committees, lead Board meetings and act as the spokesperson on behalf of the Board who is mandated to govern and control the management of the school.

I am a former pupil of St Joseph’s and have one child who is a student here.  Born and raised in Grey Lynn, my family have been active members of the Parish and wider community for three generations.  I am a lawyer by profession having worked overseas advising international governments and organisations.  It is great to be home and serving a purpose close to my heart. Our school is an integral part of the Parish and Grey Lynn community -it is home.  We are family.

Principal

Regina Smuga

Witam. I have been in education for a number of years.  My experiences started at St Peter’s College, then Baradene, St Kentigern College and St Therese Catholic School.  I have also had 6 years overseas, experiencing other curriculums and other teaching environments.  My experience overseas has strengthened my view that the New Zealand Curriculum is one of the best.

My role at St Joseph’s is to ensure that every child can have every opportunity to experience as many different educational settings as they can, whether it is in the classroom or outside and that they leave this school with a deeper understanding of their faith journey in life.

My name is Dorothy Huch-McClutchie and I am honoured to walk this journey with you all as a parent representative on St Joseph’s School Board of Trustees. I was born and raised in the beautiful of Samoa and moved to New Zealand in 2004.  My husband and I have two sons and one of them is a current student at St Josephs.  I am a very busy Administrator but being a Mom always comes first. So I am very excited to be more involved and play a role in the future of our students and the school. Everything is possible in the name of God. We love the school and are blessed to be part of the St Joseph Family. So let’s have an amazing year!

God Bless and thank you.
