Mr Dave MacLeod

Sarah and I are dairy farmers at Carew in Mid Canterbury and we have had three sons finish Waihi and one currently in Year 8.

Our boys have flourished at Waihi and this is most noticeable once they leave and embark on their secondary education, where they are fully prepared, organised, polite young men ready to excel in whatever field they choose.

As an ex-Waihi parent and a Trustee on the Board, I have a good understanding of how Waihi functions from not only a governance and financial perspective, but also a parent’s perspective.

I believe that we have to continue to attract the very best boys from supportive families, introduce them to dedicated experienced staff, and watch them develop into the best they can be.

I am currently Managing Director of two farming operations and I am a member of the Institute of Directors. I also have Rural Banking experience and have just completed the Companies Director Course through the Institute.

I am excited about Waihi’s future.
