Board of Trustees

At South Mākirikiri School our Board of Trustees in partnership with our Principal, Greg Allan, endeavour to ensure all our students achieve educational success. The key focus of our board is improving student achievement.  We are responsible for setting the school’s overall direction through policy setting and strategic planning and, in consultation with our Principal, setting targets for identified achievement gaps. We monitor our progress, self-review and strive for continuous improvement. We strive to be proactive rather than reactive. We recognise our role of governance and delegate management to the Principal.
