Kia ora koutou ngā whānau o te kura o Tītahi Bay, I am the very proud and passionate tumuaki of our amazing kura. My whānau love living in The Bay and having the most beautiful walks, bike rides and beach all within an arm’s reach is a taonga we are grateful for. I feel incredibly privileged to lead a group of exceptional kaiako and support staff at our kura. I am passionate about our school being a safe, inclusive, engaging, fun and active place for our ākonga to thrive in which emanates in them loving being at school.
Mā te huruhuru ka rere te manu – Adorn the bird with feathers so it may soar.

What is the Board of Trustees, and what do we do?

Every state and state-integrated school and kura in New Zealand has a board of trustees that governs it.

The board of trustees is a Crown entity. A Crown entity is an organisation that is part of New Zealand’s public sector.

The board’s job is to see that everything that needs to be done gets done – legally, ethically, and as well as possible in the best interests of its students.

It is also the employer of all staff, including the principal, and sets the overall strategic direction for the school or kura. The principal is the board’s ‘chief executive’ and manages the school or kura in line with the board’s direction and policies.

To learn more about what a Board of Trustees do, check out the Ministry of Education information.
