General Information

Hi I’m Cindy Young,

I have lived in Pokeno for the last 19 years, I am married to Tony and we have 2 daughters, one still attending Pokeno Primary.

Having children at the school has been a great way to get to know the community and observe some of the great successes the school and teachers have been part of. This prompted my application to be on the board and assist with the governance of the school for the future benefit of all children attending.

My background is most recently in the Education and Care of children aged (0-5), I have been working in this sector for the last 9 years having held roles as Business Manager, Compliance Manager and currently New Developments Analyst for BestStart Education and Care Centres.

I have a strong desire to see all children succeed in life and become capable, competent and life-long learners and believe that along with parent/whanau support, Pre-School and Primary School set the foundation for this to be achieved.

I am very proud to be part of Pokeno School and Community.
