Why do we have a Board?

All New Zealand state and state-integrated schools are required to have a Board of Trustees under the New Zealand Education Act.

What does the Board do?

Essentially the Board governs the school whilst the Principal manages the day to day running of the school. The Board is the Crown entity responsible for the governance of the school. The Board is responsible for setting the strategic direction of the school, overseeing the management of personnel, property, finance, and administration. It is the Board’s responsibility to deal with employment matters referred to them by the Principal as well as ensuring the school communicates effectively with the community.

Where and when do they meet?

Meetings are held once a month on Mondays at 7:00 pm in the staff room.  The next meeting date is posted below.

What should I do if I have a concern or issue I would like to see addressed?

First, speak to the relevant staff member, and then the Principal, before reaching the Board level.

Can I attend a meeting?

Members of the school community are welcome to attend and observe at any Board meeting.

Who is on the Board?

The Board of Trustees is made up of five parent representatives, one staff representative, and the Principal.

Meeting Dates

The next Board Meetings are on Monday 28  March 2022 zoom meeting. All are welcome to attend. Then 9 April, 13 June, 25 July, 29 August, 17 October and 28 November 2022.
