Manawaru School is governed by a board comprising elected people from the community with the addition of the principal and a staff representative. Other members may be co-opted on by the board. A new board is elected every three years. The board is entrusted to work on behalf of all stakeholders and is accountable for the school’s performance. It emphasises strategic leadership, helps set the vision for our school, and ensures that we comply with legal and policy requirements.
Our Board of Trustees meet week 3 and week 8 of every term in the staffroom. Advance notice of meetings is found in the school newsletter. All parents are welcome to attend.
