|Stephen Tansey Chairperson||
My name is Stephen Tansey and I came here from England in 2005 to teach and be Head of Technology at the Kura. I was staff representative on the board for three years before I retired in 2014. I see representation on the board as an opportunity to use the knowledge and understanding gained during 40 years of teaching to support the Kura and the Doubtless Bay community. I am currently privileged to be the Board Chair.
In retirement I enjoy sailing, golf, fishing and looking after my new home in Cooper’s Beach. I am also Treasurer at Mangonui Cruising Club and a member of local environmental groups.

Tēnā koutou katou
I am very fortunate to sit on the Board as the Tumuaki of Taipa Area School. I arrived at Doubtless Bay on 28th January 2014. I was appointed at Taipa Area School as the Physical Education teacher. Term 1 2016 I was employed as the Deputy Principal and was appointed as Principal May 2021.
Living in Doubtless Bay means many of our students (and staff), enjoy the environment and lifestyle that the Far North has to offer. (My down time is often spent on the water fishing from my kayak.)
At the heart of how we function, are our school values of, Manaakitanga, Painga and Mahitahi. We are a restorative community and are blessed with a rich history from our Ngati kahu iwi. Our school is proud to offer an education to all our tamariki that draws on and links them to our local community and environment.
My name is Erin Walsh, I have lived in Taipa for 17 years. I have 2 teenage children, both attend TAS and have done since year 7. As a Nurse I have the privilege of working out in the community, visiting whanau in their homes. This has given me a snapshot of the challenges faced by some of our tamariki and their whanau, from a health perspective. I have been a member of the Board for about a year now, and look forward to continuing to work with this team of dedicated board members and Tumuaki.

|Hello my name is Lisa Baker, I am the staff representative for the Board. I attended Taipa Area School in the early 1980’s as a student, I have four children who have attended Taipa Area School also. I have worked at Taipa Area School for 10 years in the finance area, and previous to that I worked at Oruaiti School for 10 years. I had served previously on the Taipa Area School Board as an elected member and then Chairperson before coming to work here. I never imagined as a pupil at Taipa Area School that I would one day be here working, but it is now my pleasure to do so.|
