Board of Trustees Newsletter Term 1

Raureka School - 31 March 2021

Presiding members report

Tena koutou! Talofa lave! Kia orana! Malo e laumalie! Namaste! Hello everyone!


Kia ora koutou katoa; warmest greetings to our Raureka community.


My name is Marguerite Watt and I lead the Raureka Board of Trustees. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and my board to you all. I live in Raureka with my partner John and our two children, Jorja who is at high school and Charlie in Year 5 in Room 19.


Our whole board meets 8 times a year – twice a term, to assess and report on progress, plan new projects and review what’s happened since we last met.


The board will post a newsletter each term with news of our latest activities to keep you informed.


Our aim is to serve you as an open and communicative board and we want to hear from you. If you see any of us at school come and have a chat about trustees and our role in serving you as the Board of Trustees.


Naku noa na, nga mihi nui
