Board of Trustees 

The board of trustees is a Crown entity. A Crown entity is an organisation that is part of New Zealand's public sector. The board's job is to see that everything that needs to be done gets done - legally, ethically, and as well as possible in the best interests of its students.


The board acts in a stewardship role and is entrusted to work on behalf of all stakeholders. It is accountable for the school’s performance, emphasises strategic leadership, sets the vision for the school and ensures compliance with legal and policy requirements.

Board policies are at a governance level and outline clear delegations to the principal. The board and principal form the leadership team with the role of each documented and understood. 

The board is proactive rather than reactive in its operations and decision-making and does not involve itself in the administrative details of the day to day running of the school. 

A Catholic School board is comprised of 5 parent elect, 4 Proprietor representatives, staff rep. and the principal.
