The Role and Responsibilities of the Board
The Board is the governing body of our school. This means that the Board is responsible for the governance of the school, including setting the policies by which the school is to be controlled and managed.
The Board’s primary objective is to ensure that every student at Kahurangi School is able to attain their highest possible standard in educational achievement.
In doing so, the Board:
- Sets the future direction for our school, including goals and targets for student achievement.

- Ensures our school’s overriding focus is on improving student progress and achievement.
- Is accountable to the school’s stakeholders for educational and general school performance. Our key stakeholders are our school community (current students, their whānau, school staff, etc.), the Crown, and the Ministry of Education.
- Is the legal employer of all school staff
