The Muritai School Board are representatives elected by the community as the governing body of the school. The Board is responsible for establishing policy objectives and supporting the efficient and effective running of the school.
The Board is responsible, with the assistance of the parents, for developing the school charter. The School Charter is an important document that specifies what our school is about, what directions it should move in, and provides ideas on how to achieve these goals. The School Charter is reviewed and revised regularly.
The Board of Trustees meets monthly - see dates below.
Kaye Sherwin (Chairperson), Andrew Saunderson (Deputy Chairperson), Jeremy Buckley, Kurt Renner, Lisa South, Bec Power (Principal), Felicity Lovell (Staff Trustee).
