Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is a crown entity – a ‘local body’ which governs the school. It is made up of representatives from all sectors of the school’s community. Through the strategic plan and policies it sets vision and direction for the school within its Christian Special Character context, and monitors progress in achieving them.

A new Board is elected every three years on a date set by the Ministry of Education. The most recent election was 2016. A student trustee is elected by pupils in September each year.

Current board members are:

  • Michael Vannoort – Principal
