Board of Trustees and Governance

Koraunui School is governed by a Board of Trustees. The Board consists of five elected parent representatives, one staff representative, the Principal and co-opted members. Trustees are elected for a 3-year term. 

The Board is responsible for ensuring a quality education for all pupils and for the safety and well-being of pupils and staff. It sets the school's strategic direction in consultation with parents, staff and pupils. It also oversees the management of personnel, curriculum, property, finance and administration. 

The Board meets once a month in the staff room. The dates and times of meetings are included in the school newsletter and are posted on the school website. Parents and whanau are welcome to attend. 

The Board draws on the diverse skills, knowledge and experience of our school community. The current members are:

The Board is committed to working with our school community so that everyone can have their say and to ensure that the Board makes well-informed decisions.
