Special Report: Christchurch - How to talk to your kids

March 18, 2019

The Christchurch massacre is one of the most extreme acts of terrorism the world has seen in recent times. For New Zealand, it was a loss of innocence. SchoolTV was actually filming in Auckland when news broke of the harrowing events unfolding in Christchurch. Unfortunately, this will impact on many kids throughout Australia and New Zealand. Some parents and care givers may struggle to explain this tragedy to their young people, many of whom are already struggling with high levels of anxiety about the state of their world.

Board of Trustees Elections 2019

All of New Zealand’s state and state-integrated schools have a board of trustees. The board of trustees is the Crown entity responsible for the governance, and the control of management of the school. Boards are responsible for setting the strategic direction in consultation with parents, staff and students, and ensuring that the school provides a safe environment and quality education for students.Standing for election for a board of trustees is a practical way of influencing the quality of your children’s education. A truly successful school is reliant on a dynamic board - one that can create the kind of supportive learning environment that drives education achievement. This year our Board of Trustee Election will be held on Friday 7 June. Interested persons are invited to contact the Returning Officer, Deirdre Bennett.
