The Establishment Board of Trustees (E BoT) was appointed by Deputy Secretary, Ministry of Education, Wellington late in 2018. (Reference to Section 98 (1) of the Education Act 1989.) Our first meeting took place in late March 2019. We are a group of experienced trustees having worked in schools and or on boards for a number of years. The development of a new school in Belmont, Pukekohe is an exciting time for the community.
