The Role and Responsibilities of the Board
The Board of Trustees (the Board) is the governing body of our school. This means that the Board is responsible for the governance of the school, including setting the policies by which the school is to be controlled and managed.
The Board’s primary objective is to ensure that every student at our school is able to attain his or her highest possible standard in educational achievement.
In doing so, the Board:

- Provides a school environment where students are safe, cared for, encouraged to do their best, and supported to flourish.
- Ensures our school’s overriding focus is on improving student progress and achievement.
- Is accountable to the school’s stakeholders for educational and general school performance. Our key stakeholders are our school community (current students, their families and whanau, school staff, etc.), the Crown, and the Ministry of Education.
- Is the legal employer of all school staff.
