Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees (BOT) is the Crown entity responsible for the governance and the control of the management of the school. That means that our BOT is responsible for setting the overall strategic direction of the school, in consultation with parents, staff and students. It is also responsible for ensuring that we provide a safe environment and quality education for the students at Hokowhitu School.
The BOT meets monthly in the school staff room, and meeting dates and times are advised in school newsletters and on the school’s electronic calendar. Board meetings are open to all members of the public, except for matters where issues of confidentiality require us to move into closed session, and we welcome all interested visitors. If you wish to add an item to the agenda for the BOT to discuss, please contact Lin or the Chairperson (via the school office) in advance.
Our Board of Trustees is made up of our principal, an elected staff representative, and five elected parent representatives.
