Tawhai School


Board of Trustees

The fundamental role of the School Board is governance of the school and to ensure that the delivery of a quality education programme occurs. The Board and Staff work as a team to achieve this aim. The role of the Principal as the professional leader of the school is acknowledged by the Board of Trustees, (BOT).

The board members are

  • Angela Whitmarsh (Chairperson)
  • Stuart Berkeley
  • Raewyn Lummis
  • Dominic Wright
  • Melinda McGinty
  • Steve Kyle
  • Karen Poole (Principal)
  • Lynley Poole (Staff representative)

The current BOT goals are to:

  • provide an environment for all staff that is focused on their safety and well-being
  • provide our school community with a happy and safe place to learn and thrive
  • support parents by absorbing the costs of a swimming programme and an optional maths programme
  • provide additional funding for children who need extra support in Literacy and Numeracy
  • reflect our school values of Integrity, Respect, Responsibility and Resilience

Meeting times

Board meetings are open to all and are normally held on the last Tuesday of each month at 7pm in the Staffroom.
