Student elections

Are you up for the job?

Providing Deaf Education Services in New Zealand is the responsibility of Ko Taku Reo Deaf Education New Zealand, serving the whole of the country, and supporting over 3,000 Deaf and Hard of Hearing students.

The Board of Trustees is made up of six parent trustees, a staff trustee, two student trustees and the Executive Principal.

During August, nominations will be invited for the election of two new student trustees to the Board who will attend Board meetings for a period of one year.

What does being a Trustee Involve?

Being a Trustee is an important position that allows you the chance to have a say in how Deaf Education in New Zealand is run.

There are eight meetings held each year, either in Christchurch or Auckland. Travel expenses are covered and you will be paid to attend the meetings.

If picked as Student Trustee, you will be given advice and support to help guide you in your role.
