The Board of Trustees has a governance role and sets the vision for the school. By assisting and supporting the Principal, the board helps define the long - term aspirations and strategy of the school. Specifically, the board is responsible for curriculum and policy, finance, property, health and safety, discipline and the employment and remuneration of senior staff.
The Board is not responsible for the day-to-day management of the school; this is the responsibility of the school Principal.

Feedback from the Community Hui - Nov 2018
Sometimes quality surpasses quantity and our recent community hui was confirmation of this.
A much smaller group of whānau than last year meant that conversations could be in depth and specific.
There were five main points of discussion:
The openness of staff with parents and students was clear as was the variety of activities and curriculum. Areas we can do better are more emphasis on performing arts, technology and more creative assessments.
There is a real interest in formulating plans for more community involvement and the many ways that may happen. The shift from conventional teaching methods into a more student centred learning is something that both staff and parents felt worthy of pursuing further. (In fact this is an area of significant focus for the school in 2019)
These questions and points of discussion remain valid not just during the hui process but throughout the year. If parents, students, whānau or the wider community have questions or comments any time, we are wanting to hear them.
