The work of the Board of Trustees (BoT) is rather like the steel framing in a building. It doesn’t get much attention from the outside but is critical to the strength and vitality of the structure.

The members of the BoT work with the principal and school staff to implement the school’s charter and vision. They work to meet the school’s legal obligations by:

• Establishing and reviewing policy
• Supporting staff to ensure the effective delivery of the curriculum
• Being a good employer
• Administering the school’s finances and property
• Providing strategic plans to develop and improve the school as a whole over time.

The BoT monthly meetings are usually held on Monday evenings (week 3 and 8 of each term) and are listed in the newsletters. They are open to the public. For more information on being involved in the BoT, please contact the school’s office. 09 473 8603
