Meet Your Board: Frazer Elliott

Frazer represents a unique voice on our board of governors—he is the only member who is not a parent of a student at the school. We recognized the value of having a local business owner contribute to the school’s governance and Frazer represented a dynamic presence in the island’s business scene, having a pulse on the real estate market (which proves invaluable when we are in dialogue with prospective employees looking to relocate to Bowen Island). 

A former high school teacher, Frazer saw joining the board as a chance to maintain a connection with the education world, allowing a foot to linger in the realm of academia.

With a genuine enthusiasm for the Island Pacific School community, Frazer enjoys supporting our staff, and their work with our cohort of truly remarkable students. He says it’s this interaction that makes being part of our school immensely fulfilling.

When asked about Frazer’s personal high school memories, (he attended Rockridge) he recalled enjoying social studies and drama classes, along with a somewhat comical memory of a gymnastics competition at the provincial championships. Despite the unfortunate incident of falling off the rings and succumbing to a mid-competition concussion, the experience remained etched as a highlight of his middle years! 

Frazer’s early interest in drama has lured him into the local theatre group, Theatre on the Isle (TOTI), where he not only acts (most recently playing Finbar in The Weir this season) but he directs, writes, produces and composes and serves on their board!

Frazer’s love of theatre, outdoor adventures such as hiking and backcountry snowboarding, and music brings not only a distinct perspective but also a wealth of experience that enrich Island Pacific School in ways beyond the conventional.
