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

Michael Pascoe




General Information

I am married to Kylie Pascoe and we are the proud parents of 2 boys at Bombay School; Joshua (10)

and Flynn (8). Family life keeps me very active via bush walks and local community fun runs. Outside of family orientated activity I

am an avid fan of Ice Hockey and have played for the last 20 years.

I graduated from the University of Auckland in 1996 with an Arts Degree in Biological Anthropology. My career didn’t follow my

educational passions and I now work as an Account Manager for a German multinational engineering company in the field of factory

and building automation. As a part of my role I am responsible for budgets, project management, developing relationships and

health & safety.

What I want for and from Bombay school is an environment where children can be themselves and to find success. I want an

atmosphere where learning can flourish and personalities develop. I want our children to have a place where they will grow into the

best people they can possibly be.

Two things drive me on a daily basis; I am a massive advocate for critical thinking skills and I have a passion for equality. I’m often

accused of giving “another dad lesson” on some science or humanitarian topic. While core educational subjects are fundamental

essentials to any education, I also believe that extracurricular pursuits outside of academia (participation in sports, charity and/or

service to the community) need to be encouraged to develop well rounded future adults.

I believe as an elected trustee I can add value to the governance of Bombay School and I relish the opportunity to work with the

other trustees to achieve the best for the students, families, teachers and community of a flourishing school.
