Co-Chair - Mike Evans (Schools in the City)
Mike's direct involvement with education has been as an Aotea College Board of Trustees member then Chair, between 2007-2013. He has been involved with Shine since then, with a focus on the Schools In The City area. The objective of Schools In The City is to enhance collaboration between schools in the city and between schools and the city, communities and business - aligning plans and activities and sharing resources and expertise for mutual benefit. Mike would love to see more of our secondary school students staying in the city for their education and receiving a fantastic education here. He is also keen to see more done to address the gap between boys and girls educational achievement.
Mike is a Plimmerton resident who works as a Business Development General Manager in Wellington. In his spare time his interests are poetry, politics, tennis and bowls.
