Term 2, Week 3 - 2019

We held our final meeting for the 2016 – 2019 Board of Trustees earlier this week.
At this meeting we recognised the many achievements of the trustees who have worked tirelessly in their governance role over their period of time on the board.
I would like to offer my sincere thanks to each and every one of you:
Brett Calkin who has served on our board for 9 years, the last 6 years skilfully completing the chairperson role and managing personnel.
Tim Foss and Philip Steer have each served for 6 years. Tim has been the deputy chairperson and his specific portfolio has been efficiently managing the finances. Philip held the projects and community role successfully before moving into policy. Mike Campbell and Andrew Hill have served for almost 3 years – effectively managing the project management and property portfolios. Rachel Buckley was co- opted onto the board just 12 months ago – her speciality portfolios have been grant applications and community matters. Carlee Hodge has been the elected staff representative and Amanda Redley the minute secretary.
Helen Griffin and Reece Hawkins also attend board meetings to offer support and advice to the board.

What a highly talented group of people – I am honoured to have worked alongside you. Among their many achievements, the school is financially secure and this has allowed the board to contribute significantly to the Ministry of Education allocations when we have completed property upgrades. There is no way our physical learning environments could be so appealing without this injection of funds.
