Trustees and Staff

Ellen Appleton.

In 2004 we moved from Germany to this most beautiful area, my children started in the Kindergarten and School immediately. For the next 9 years I was a passionate Midnight Elf and active community supporter. The school and it’s philosophy has nurtured and guided me through parenthood. When my children moved on to High School I wanted to give back. I found fulfillment and purpose through joining the board of trustees, eventually taking on the role of chair person. This journey has been a rewarding yet challenging time of learning and inspiration, I am ever grateful for the fantastic team I am a part of.
