Parent Representative: Alan Richardson

I am a Northlander born and raised, and even though I have spent time living and working in other parts of New Zealand and overseas, Northland has always been home (I can think of no more welcoming sight than the view across Bream Bay from the top of the Brynderwyns). One thing I have learned in my travels is the importance of education in every society. I have one son currently attending Kamo High (Year 10) and he is loving his time here. When I am not busy working I love anything to do with the ocean (fishing, diving, sailing...) and I also play and coach Football (soccer).

Student Representative: Kahn Tangihaere-Brom

Kia ora, Ko Kahn Tangihaere-Brom Toku ingoa.

Ko Ngāti Kahu Ngāti Maniapoto ngā iwi.

My name is Kahn Tangihaere-Brom, I’m half Dutch, half Māori. I’ve lived in New Zealand for all of my life, but I’ve only been living in Whangarei since around the start of 2017. I’ve been second place academic Dux for my last year of intermediate school, as well as academic second place Year 9 in 2017 at Kamo High School. Aside from being the Student Representative on Kamo High School’s Board of Trustees, I am also one of the school’s Junior Ambassadors. I enjoy reading, dice, sudoku and self-improvement, and I’m all about trying new things and putting myself out there. I may be somewhat ambitious in my intentions with my position on the Board, but I hope to make some sort of meaningful and/or noticeable change for Kamo High School in the future.
