About Us

Our Foundation Team

Kim Voigt- Trustee, Chairperson

I am married to Russell, and we have four children, three of whom attended Waiuku College. My community involvement includes the Sandpit Road School Board of Trustees, Waiuku Netball Centre and Franklin Baptist Church.

After more than 20 years in Human Resources, I elected to move into the property world and co-owned a business trading and investing in property.

We have a unique sense of community in Waiuku, and I believe by being involved in the community and giving back we can make a difference. I’ve discovered that when I surround myself with different kinds of people, I learn about and am exposed to new cultures, innovative ideas, extraordinary talents, and varying interests. An additional benefit are the positive social interactions I’ve enjoyed over all the years of community work. The Waiuku College Foundation is an exciting venture and I look forward to the team making a positive difference to the lives of our students.

Chris Hedley- Trustee, Deputy Chairperson

I have lived in Waiuku for 15 years and have been on the Sandspit Road School Board since 2015, including Chair from 2018. My wife’s family have been in the local community for over a century. My work includes financial advisory, governance and investment advisory, skills I apply to community involvement.

We have one child currently at Waiuku College, and two starting in coming years.

As part of the Waiuku College Foundation, I am motivated to provide students opportunities in activities that give enjoyment, enable development and generate a sense of pride - opportunities I had at Rotorua Boys’ High School.

Selwyn Herewini, Trustee

I am excited to be a part of the Waiuku College Foundation and look forward to creating opportunities for our future leaders. I have experience working alongside Rangatahi with unreleased potential and as a Kaitautoko at Waiuku College, I help develop solutions to support positive outcomes for students. I am passionate about supporting whānau and working in partnership with others to build a stronger community.

I encourage Rangatahi to engage in sport, fitness, outdoor recreation, and Te Ao Māori whilst maintaining a very busy lifestyle with my awesome partner and whānau.

Brian Perry- Trustee, Treasurer

I am the Business Manager at Waiuku College and have had three children through our school. I am excited to be on the foundation to create opportunities for our students.

In my spare time, I like following sport, and spending time with my family.

Antoinette Walters, Trustee, Administrator

I have lived in Waiuku for 32 years and worked at Waiuku College in the Careers Dept for 6. I absolutely love the team spirit that being part of a rural community brings.

I am so passionate about our students and their futures. Being part of the Waiuku College Foundation will allow us to be of assistance in the growth of the leadership within our community’s future. Backing our students in reaching their potential, be it sport, arts, cultural or academic is a privilege to be part of.

I love spending time with my family and friends, cooking, traveling, or supporting the mighty Blues, following my daughter’s sports, or enjoying new and crazy experiences.

Stuart Kelly, Trustee, Principal/Tumuaki-Waiuku College

Kia ora e te whanau

I am in the privileged position of being Tumuaki/Principal of Waiuku College. When not serving the Waiuku College community, I am the father of two young boys and love fishing and the outdoors. The foundation offers a fantastic opportunity for the Waiuku College community to support our students financially in terms of opportunities in terms of Academic, Cultural, Leadership, Arts, Service & Sport.

The Waiuku College Foundation also offers up a unique alumni context for our kura.

Anne Ansell, Secretary

I have had a relationship with Waiuku College ever since 1972 initially as a student and the last 43 years as a school administrator. I am currently the school's Executive Assistant.

In my spare time, I like spending time with my family, walking my dogs, and watching documentaries and movies.
