At Kaharoa School, our Board is made up of:

  • The Principal of the School
  • One elected staff representative
  • Five parent elected trustees

  • Trustees are elected by the parent community and staff members. We are looking for FIVE parent elected trustees in this election.

    The Board meets twice a term (8 meetings a year), see our School calendar for dates. Meetings are open to the public, however, they are not public meetings where everyone has the right to speak. Speaking rights can be granted in advance by the Board Chair. In some instances, parts of Board meetings are closed to the public when the Board is discussing confidential matters.
