THE ROLE OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES
The board is entrusted to work on behalf of all stakeholders and is accountable for the school’s performance. It emphasises strategic leadership, sets the vision for the school, and ensures that it complies with legal and policy requirements. Policies are at a governance level and outline clear delegations to the principal.The board is proactive in its operations and decision-making and does not involve itself in the administrative details of the day-to-day running of the school. The board and principal form the leadership team, with the role of each documented and understood. The principal reports to the board as a whole with committees used sparingly and only when a need is identified in order to contribute to board work.
THE LYNFIELD COLLEGE BOARD OF TRUSTEESThe current Board of Trustees was elected in June 2019. It comprises of the principal, five elected trustees, a staff trustee and a student trustee.
