Newsletter Week 9 Term 2
Turua School 30th June 2022
Next week brings us to the end of term 2. It has been a busy term with continued disruption across the school due to COVID. I wish to thank and acknowledge all the staff for the way they have got on with teaching and supporting our students. Changes often being made at the last minute.
Your Household Contacts will also need to isolate for 7 days, unless they have had COVID-19 in the last 3 months. We still have RAT tests available at the office if you require them.
BOARD OF TRUSTEE ELECTIONS
Becoming a board member
Why join a school board?
School board members are active leaders in our schools. They have an important role of supporting strong professional leadership and ensuring effective teaching for all students through informed governance.
Parents/caregivers and people in the wider community can be parent representatives. School boards need to represent the diversity of their school communities to ensure a bright future for all our children.
The school board elections are the opportunity to vote for candidates who will make a positive difference for children’s education. We need more people willing to use their skills and experiences for the benefit of students!
"Board members are entrusted by the community to ensure the success of our schools and a bright future for our children. We need an education system where all children are expected to succeed and one where we all take shared responsibility in ensuring this happens. As a member of a school board you can make things happen - you can make a difference."
- Lorraine Kerr, NZSTA President
What does it mean to be on a school board?
Our Community member guide to the role of school boards provides information on what school boards are, the role of members, and how to become a board member. You can also check out our information for parents on the NZSTA website.
Our communities need great boards to help build great schools
