Board of trustees
All of New Zealand's state and state-integrated schools have a Board of Trustees.The Board of Trustees is the Crown entity responsible for the governance and the control of the management of the school.
What is the role of the school board?
The Board is the employer of all staff in the school, is responsible for setting the school's strategic direction in consultation with parents, staff, and students, and ensuring that the school provides a safe environment and quality education for all its students. Boards are also responsible for overseeing the management of personnel, curriculum, property, finance, and administration.
As the elected governors, the Board of Trustees set the strategic direction for the School.
When and where are meetings held?
Meetings are held in the staffroom and parents are welcome to attend; please refer to the School's Calendar. The agenda is set prior to each meeting and minutes are made available on request. A complete record of minutes is available from the School Office.
Can I become a trustee?
Every three years the school community elects its trustees. You can find out more about becoming a trustee at the NZSTA website - and keep an eye on school newsletters and the website for upcoming election dates.
