Boards of Trustees are accountable to parents and caregivers, their local communities, the Minister of Education and the Ministry of Education, other government agencies and the public, for their actions and performance.

The Board is the employer of all the school’s staff and is responsible for:

  • setting the school’s strategic and policy direction in consultation with parents, staff and students.
  • ensuring that the school provides a safe environment and quality education for all its students.
  • overseeing the management of curriculum, staff, property, finance and administration.
  • constantly monitoring and reviewing progress against targets to inform future planning

We are lucky to have the great people we have that help steward the school towards progression and success. We understand we are in a state of continue reflection and review however we love this about our role.
