Dear Parents, caregivers and whanau


School 2019 Board of Trustee Elections

You have until just noon next Friday, 24 May, to submit a nomination form for yourself or someone else to fill the five vacancies we have for our St Catherine’s Board. Please do give this serious thought, as we need a strong band of parents to keep our college performing well for all our girls.


Attached are step by step instructions, but if you have any problems or

queries please contact Chris Perry, School Liaison for the BOT election on 939 8998 or and she will be able to guide you through the process.


We need five trustees for our Board of Trustees. Last week I let you know about this and included some areas of responsibility so you could see what is needed. 


Our Board meets about 8 or 9 times a year with some committee meetings in between these meetings. We rarely go over two hours for a Board meeting.

                                            then be held if the number of nominations exceed vacancies.

                                            For our school the number of parent vacancies is 5.
