Our School Board

The Papanui Primary School Board of Trustees is responsible for the governance of the school. The Board’s role is a strategic one, focusing on the big picture and employing the Principal to manage the school.

The BOT is made up of the Principal, an elected staff representative, several parent representatives who are elected by the parents and other members who are appointed by the BOT.

The board’s role is set by the Education Act and the BOT is required to ensure the school meets the government’s National Education Priorities (2020). These are:

  • Learners at the centre
  • Barrier-free access
  • Quality teaching and leadership

  • Future of learning and work

  • World-class inclusive public education
