The Board of Trustees (BOT) is a partnership consisting of committed community members, Mrs Montague and Mr Sei Tereora represent the teachers.  The BOT is responsible for the overall strategic direction of the school and ensuring our school is an excellent learning environment for all students.  The BOT plays a vital role in providing quality education.  Certain legal obligations are required such as reviewing and updating the school charter and strategic plans, policy review and development, asset management including finance and property and health and safety compliance.

New Board members are supported and encouraged to attend education sessions to develop their skills in effective governance. Each Board member has a three year term. Meetings are monthly for approximately three hours. These meetings adhere to a formal format, although delivered in a casual and supportive manner.

To make contact with the Board of Trustees, please email Shelley Roschmann - Board and School Secretary she will be able to direct your query to the correct person on the Board.
