My name is Willow Salvador, I am of Italian/Māori decent and was born and brought up in the thriving metropolis of Turangi and although I moved away from Turangi for just over 10 years, I have known no other place as home.
Our eight year old son Giovanni is into his third year now at Kuratau
School and he absolutely loves his school.
I work for Tuwharetoa Health Charitable Trust and have done so the past 13 years in various roles and have for the past 4 years have held the role of CEO. I have a degree in Management and recently completed my Business Postgrad with a focus on Human Resources.
I think we have a fantastic school community here at Kuratau School and would be privileged to have the opportunity to continue to tautoko Shirley and her team, alongside other trustees as and where I can.
