Hi, my name is Matthew Child, (Matt).
I have two young children, Lewis (Year 4) and Indie (Year 2) that attend Green Bay School. I have previously been co-opted onto the board when the school was in a time of need and in this time, I supported the school through the fire in 2017.
I have spent the last 18 years in the NZ Police where I have held management roles in investigations, community policing and emergency response. My current position is making sure all available resources are deployed correctly right across the Auckland region.
I want the best not only for my children but for all the children who attend Green Bay Primary. I want to help the students and the staff achieve their full potential. I want the school to be the best it can be, and I believe I can help achieve this. I am a level-headed and practical thinker. I have excellent communication skills and have culturally inclusive values.
I look forward to the challenges and opportunities that this role may bring.
