May- June sees NZ schools elect new Board of Trustees.
The Board of Trustees helps with the governance of a school and is made up of parent representatives along with a staff representative and the principal.
Any person with an interest in our school is eligible to stand for the Board of Trustees election.
Parents are on the electoral roll and vote for these representatives.
The election process starts with the printing of the electoral roll which will be available for public scrutiny in the school office.
Next week I will be calling for nominations.
Nominations close on 24 May and if necessary voting papers are sent home soon after that.
Voting closes on 7 June - Election Day.
Please start thinking about standing for the Board of Trustees, we need representation from across our school community.
If you need to know more about being a Board of Trustee member, the time commitment or what they do please feel free to make contact with a current Board member - Carey Talauta - Chairperson, Zandra Raxworthy, Leanne Bailey, Kawai Horomia, Warrick Price or with me as the Returning Officer for this election.
