Our Board of Trustees is elected by the school community and focuses on enhancing student achievement. In partnership with the management team, the Board ensures that the values of the school community are reflected in the way our school operates. The Board has a governance role and regularly reviews policies to maintain compliance with legal and Ministry of Education requirements. It does not involve itself in the administrative details of the day-to-day running of the school. Board meetings are held Week 3 and 8 of each term, starting at 6pm on Tuesday evenings in the school boardroom. Dates are advertised in the newsletter and on our website. Parents and members of the community are welcome to attend.

Parent Trustee

Tena koutou katoa, my name is William (Willie) Unuka. My daughter attends Greenacres School. My mother owns an Early Childhood Centre in Karori, so I have taken on a management role within this space (staff, centre and governance responsibility) and as a result my interest in education has grown. Being of both Maori and Pacific Island decent I am very interested in bi-culturalism within education and what that means for all NZ children. I look forward to the opportunity to contribute to and promote 'Te Ao Maori' (a Maori world view) to the Board.
