Board of Trustees

Our mission signposts a deliberate refresh of the school culture with the intent of ensuring it's sustainability into the future. This is the result of the working partnerships being generated between our school, students, whanau, parents, hapu and iwi. We acknowledge Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the Treaty of Waitangi.

Where there is confusion or ambiguity, precedence will be given to Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
