Hi, my name is Emma Hopkinson. Myself and my family are sheep&beef farmers as well as mussel farmers. We have 4 children, with 2 attending WBS. I am Board Chair of WBS and I am also on the board of Te Wheke.

I believe that Education is very important. Education is the ability to inspire others with knowledge. It is knowy what you can do and how you can do it. Education gives you the skills and knowledge to achively participate and keep up with the changing ways of the world.

Chris has been on the Board of Trustees at Newlands School, South Wellington Intermediate, Havelock School and now as the Staff Rep at Waitaria Bay School. He lives at Double Bay Raetihi, Kenepuru Sound.
