29 June 2017


With regret the Board of Trustees has accepted the resignation of Nadine Marshall from her position as Chairperson and Parent Representative.  The Board wishes to thank Nadine for her service to Redwood School as a member of the Board of Trustees and as the Chairperson for the past year.  We have valued her input and leadership as a board member, and know that we will miss her wise counsel around the board table.  At the Board Meeting held on 27thJune Ana Connor was elected as Chairperson. 

As a Board we discussed the options available to us to fill the vacancy.  Due to the imminent rebuild of the school, we would like to co-opt a representative from our community with experience in construction contracts and/or large building projects.  If you are interested in filling this role, please see Chris Els in the first instance for more information.


Board of Trustees Meetings:

Normally these are held once a month on a Tuesday at 7.00pm in Kereru Hub (the old Library). Please check the date of the next meeting by contacting the school office.

Board of Trustees meetings are open to the public. Where there are confidential or sensitive issues to be discussed, these are dealt with “in committee” (provided for under the Education Act 1989). This is where the public is asked to leave the meeting for these matters to be dealt with.

Board of Trustees Newsletter and Notice Board

Periodically a Board of Trustees newsletter is issued to all parents and information will appear on our website.
