Te Awamutu Primary School BOT Members

Craig Sanders
General Information

I was born in Te Awamutu and apart from a three year stint overseas in Europe I have lived here all my life.

I am a TAPS old boy and was House Leader of Aotea in 1982.

I am married to Tania and have two children Caitlin and Michael. Both attended TAPS, with Caitlin now in her first year at College and Michael at Intermediate.

My primary job is Principal (Business Advisory) at Crowe Horwath (NZ) Ltd. I am a Trustee of Waipa Networks Trust and Company Director of Grassroots Trust Ltd as well as being the Treasurer of the Te Awamutu Club and St Paul's Old Collegians.

I am passionate about giving our children the best education possible in all fields of life, including cultural and sporting aspects.

I held the position of Board Chair from 2014-2016 before handing the reigns over to Debbie Scott. I believe TAPS is a great school and I chose to be involved as a board member to ensure we continue to be great. In saying that, “good enough never is”, and as a team we (the board) will strive to create continuous improvement.
