The Karāpiro School Board works on behalf of the school community and is accountable for the school’s performance. Front of mind always is to make considered decisions in the best interests our students, allowing them to achieve to their full potential.

The Board has the responsibility of governing the school and welcomes input from parents and regularly seeks to consult with the community when establishing the school's direction, writing policies and forming long term plans, etc.  The Board is made up of elected parents, a staff trustee and the Principal and elections are held every three years.

We focus on strategic planning towards our school vision, and ensure that it complies with legal requirements. The board accomplishes this via our school charter and policies, with clear delegation to our principal who we entrust the responsibility to manage the day-to-day operations of the school.

You are invited to contact our Presiding Member or Principal Alana Thompson principal@karapiro.school.nz  if you would like more information on our Board.
