Board Members

Hi I'm Nikola Webster.  I currently have three children who attend Elmgrove, Annabelle, Fletcher and Hugo, no doubt you would have seen (or heard) us in the playground or walking Argyle St.  I keep myself busy by working part-time as an Accountant at Yardley Lo in Mornington and helping my husband Kurt with the admin of his building business amongst other things. I have a hands on approach to parenting and enjoy playing an active role in my children's busy lives.  I am honoured to be selected as a member of your board of trustees and will work with enthusiasm and commitment to represent the school community going forward.

Hi, I’m Aaron Whitley. My wife, Susie and I have five boys together - Zac, Flynn, Sam, and Jake who attend Taieri College, and Joel who is in Year 3 at Elmgrove School. We seem to be known in Mosgiel as the ‘family with five boys!’ Susie and I both grew up in South Otago and have settled in Mosgiel after being absent for several years for travel and work, to be closer to family.

I currently work as a helicopter pilot and hold the role of Chief Flying Instructor/Training Manager for Helicopters Otago.  Development of standards, training programmes, and compliance with the regulating body are a key part of this role. 

I feel excited and privileged to be elected to the Elmgrove Board of Trustees and I am committed to continuing the great work carried out by previous Board members.

Hi, I’m Jared Campbell, a financial adviser for Dunedin firm Polson Higgs Wealth Management.  I have pretty much always lived in Mosgiel and attended Elmgrove (then Mosgiel West) before heading off to Taieri College and university.


My wife, Anna, and I have two children, Heidi year 3 and Cooper year 1. 


This is my second school Board of Trustees term and I am looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting involved with the running of our fine school.

Hi, I’m Gemma Jenkins. My husband, Chris, and I have two children – Lucy who is in the middles at Elmgrove and Heidi who starts next year. I work as a consultant at an Agri-business company, AbacusBio. As well as working on science projects, I’m involved in strategy development, reporting to the board and represent our company on a national council. I’m a member of the Institute of Directors and have completed their governance development programme and finance essentials course. I believe that in Elmgrove we have a great school – a hardworking and quality team of teachers, support staff, fundraising committee and engaged school community. It is a privilege to have been elected to the Elmgrove Board of Trustees and I look forward to being involved at the board level and contributing to the school community.

Clark, Amy.jpg
I am the current staff representative on the current Board of Trustees. My three children were all lucky enough to attend Elmgrove and I have been a teacher at Elmgrove since 2016. I bring a number of personal strengths and interests to the role such as Maori language and tikanga perspectives but my role is primarily to bring a staff perspective to the Board alongside the parent representatives. It is a privilege to be involved in the decision making processes at a board level and to have a say in the direction we take for the tamariki at Elmgrove School.
