Liz Schellekens was first elected to the BOT in 2013. She and her husband John have three daughters; Kate and Jane have already attended RI and Anna is at Victoria Avenue School.
Liz has a Master of Commerce (Operations Research). Prior to having children she worked as a business consultant helping clients to optimise their business, particularly in relation to information and communication technology projects.
As an advocate of specialist intermediate schooling Liz believes that RI does an exceptional job of catering to the specific learning and social needs of pre-adolescents. She enjoys applying her experience to the BOT as it supports the school in providing an excellent education and wide range of opportunities for its students.
