Meet the Board of Trustee members

Me tūtaki ki ngā hūanga o Te Poari Kaitiaki

The Board of Trustees is accountable for student achievement. It does this by providing an environment that supports and encourages quality educational outcomes. The Board is responsible for ensuring that Ko Taku Reo focuses its strategic planning on improving student achievement through high-quality teaching and learning programmes.

The Board is made up of six parent trustees, a staff trustee, two student trustees and the Executive Principal. Up to four additional trustees may be co-opted to ensure that the views of the Deaf community and of Maori are represented on the board.
