Board of Trustees

Chairperson: Darren van de Wetering


My name is Darren van de Wetering and I am proud to be associated with St Joseph's Paeroa. I was born and raised in Paeroa and attended this school myself, taking warm memories with me when I finished. My two daughters now attend St Joseph's, and will be joined in the years to come by their younger siblings. I am a teacher at Paeroa College and have a passion for the education of the youth in our town. When I'm not teaching I enjoy sports (almost anything, but mostly golf), hiking and camping out in the wilderness, and a bit of rough and tumble with my kids.
