Bombay School - Our Best Always - Ake Runga - Years 0 to 8

Matthew Bagley


Board Chairperson


General Information

I am a Bombay resident and father of two girls. My children have now left Bombay School. I have been a school Board member for the last 7 years, 4 of those as Board secretary and this year as Board chair.

Bombay school has undergone significant change in the last 6 years; new Principal, changes in staff, school layout, and teaching delivery. I am proud of the changes that have been made and in the role the Board has played. Strong governance and clear strategic goals have formed the foundation on which these changes could be made successfully. I’m equally proud that these changes have
strengthened the connections between the school and our community, and reinforced the special character and culture of our school.

I am co-founder and Chief Technology Officer for the Virsae Group, an Auckland based software development company that provides service management software to customers world-wide. I have 30 years experience in the information and communication technology sector and have enjoyed bringing this knowledge and experience to Bombay school. I understand strategic planning, and offer experience in governance and management in both public and commercial environments.
