Roles, Responsibilities 
The Papakaio Board of Trustees is focused on governing the school in a way that ensures every child gets the best possible education to prepare them to be responsible and successful citizens.
This is achieved by;
  • having a clear vision and strategic plan
  • hiring and supporting quality and effective staff
  • resourcing programmes and infrastructure
  • setting effective policies and procedures
  • reviewing school and student performance
We are always keen to get feedback on our school's performance.
