Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees works in partnership with the Principal to support and lead the school, and provide our students with the very best opportunities to maximise their learning potential and prepare them for the future.
The Board is responsible for the governance of the school, setting the school’s strategic direction, recognising and enhancing the Special Catholic Character, compliance, allocating decision-making responsibilities and giving focus to student progress and achievement. It is also the employer of all staff, and reports annually to the Proprietor in relation to its legal obligations.
Further information on the role of the Board can be found on www.minedu.govt.nz/Boards.aspx
