Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees at Riverview has been given power under the Education Act 1989 to control the management of the school by making sure that the school achieves its charter goals through good practices.  In practice, the Board is responsible, among other things, for:

  • Setting strategic goals
  • Reviewing how well those goals are being achieved
  • Charter development and modification, in consultation with the community
  • Employment of teaching and support staff
  • Preparation of the annual report
  • Managing school finances
  • Complying with the conditions for occupying crown-owned buildings and land
  • Authorising student visits
  • Student stand-downs, suspensions, and enrolments
  • The enrolment scheme (zoning)

The Board at Riverview has five parent trustees, one staff trustee, and the Principal.  Elections for the Board are held every three years, with the next one in May next year.

The Board meets in the School Staffroom.  The meetings are usually held once a month.  Meetings of the Board are open to the public, but they are not public meetings.  In other words, members of the public may attend (except during in-committee business) but they do not have speaking or voting rights; they may, however, be invited to speak at the beginning of a meeting.  Meetings are advertised in the weekly school newsletter.

The Riverview School Board members are YOUR REPRESENTATIVES. We are always interested in your comments, opinions, and feedback.
