Welcome to the Kaurilands School Board of Trustees page.

On behalf of the community, the Board of Trustees is responsible for the governance of our school. The Board sets the school’s strategic direction and is accountable for the school’s performance. Our primary focus is ensuring that our children are continuously improving and achieving to the best of their abilities.

The Kauriland's Charter outlines the 3 year strategic plan that guides our thinking. Monitoring progress towards the goals outlined in the plan is a key focus for the board as is asking the hard questions to ensure we make the right strategic decisions for our community, our staff and our children.  

Our Principal, Jo Augustine, is the Board’s Chief Executive and is responsible for the management of the school. The Board’s role is to support the principal as they work within the school’s policies to lead the strategic direction.  If you wish to view our school policies please email [email protected]
