Board of Trustees

Every state and state-integrated school in New Zealand has a Board of Trustees. School Board membership includes elected parent representatives, an elected staff representative and the principal.

As our school is a state integrated school we also have four proprietors representatives - these people are appointed by the Bishop (our proprietor).

How is a BOT elected?
The school staff and parents elect boards of trustees every three years. All parents of students who are enrolled full-time can and should vote in the elections for parent representatives.
