School boards play a critically important role in New Zealand’s schools and by extension, New Zealand’s future.
Our board need people who have the skills to ask the right questions and make the necessary decisions to influence and support educational opportunities for each and every student in our schools.
Being a school trustee is an important role that needs people with a range of skills and experiences, who can make a positive difference to our children’s learning.
It is important that the board reflects its community therefore we need a good balance of gender, ethnicity and skills around the board table.
We therefore encourage people to put their names forward to be nominated for election to our school board.

WHO CAN NOMINATE?
All parents of students enrolled in a New Zealand state or state integrated school are eligible to nominate themselves or someone else from the community, for election to a school board.
You will be mailed out a nomination form by our returning officer, Yvonne Small, with extra nomination forms available from the school office.
