Board of Trustees
Our school is governed by a Board of Trustees, which is elected every three years. Their role is to establish, implement and review school policy, within Government guidelines.
Our principal is on the Board of Trustees and handles the day-to-day leadership, administration and management of the school. He is assisted by a senior leadership team who are committed to supporting students and teachers in partnership with whanau.
The Board of Trustees gather twice a term at the school for public meetings.
