The Trustees

The Board of Trustees has statutory powers under the Education Act of 1989 as a Crown entity and is responsible for the governance of the school. The board and its trustees work to ensure that the school is run in the best interests of its students and their community.

The board usually comprises five parent representatives, a staff rep and the principal. The school's executive officer is also the minute secretary. The board generally meets twice a term in one of the learning areas at 19:00 on a Monday. The dates are set on the school's web calendar and advertised in the newsletter.

The school has a staggered election cycle. The triennial election occurred in June 2019 (3 positions) and the mid-term election follows in October 2020 (2 positions).  The public is very welcome to attend any board meetings, check the calendar and come along - they are meetings held in public, not public meetings. Should you wish to consider becoming a trustee at some time then please make contact to find out more.
