2016 is the Board of Trustees election year. All positions on the Board of Trustees are open for parent trustee nominations. Nominations open on Friday, 6 May and close at noon on Friday 20 May.
A roll of eligible voters has been drawn up from the parents and caregivers of our current students. You are invited to check the roll before Wednesday, 4 May to ensure you are on the list to vote for the parent representatives.
You must also ensure that the office has the correct mailing address for you. If you have moved since enrolling your daughter in our school, you must ensure your correct address is in our system. After 4 May, a supplementary roll will be open until noon on Wednesday, 18 May. This is the last date that changes can be made to the roll.
On 4 May, parents/caregivers on the voting roll will be sent a letter and a nomination form by the group running the election on behalf of the school. How quickly this will get to you will depend on the speed of the mail system. Nominations close at noon on Friday, 20 May.
Voting papers are sent out to all on the roll by Wednesday 25 May. You have until noon on Friday, 3 June to register your vote. Votes are counted on Thursday 9 June. The new Board of Trustees takes office on Friday 10 June 2016 for the next 3 years.
If you want to know more about standing for the Board, please read the pamphlet students were asked to take home. Please ask a current member of the Board about being a trustee.
The School Trustees Association website has some very good information on being a trustee. The web address is: http://www.trustee-election.co.nz/
Please consider standing for the Board. It is a very rewarding and interesting experience.

Parents, when dropping off in the Huia Street car park please be aware that Huia Street is a through road to the Park Road Playcentre. If you are turning in the car park please take care and be aware of vehicles around you. We would also like to remind you not to stop on the yellow lines outside of the administration block as this causes congestion and risk for other students.
