Board of Trustee Elections

Board of Trustee Elections are held every three years, and will be held across May and June this year.  The election is about ensuring that we have strong parent representation on our Board of Trustees, who are charged with governance of St Mary’s.

During the election process we will keep you up-to-date with information and requests via email and by post.  It is therefore key that we have all your current postal address and email details. You can check and, if necessary, change these on the Parent Portal.

If you have any questions and/or an interest in being a Parent Representative on the Board of Trustees see:

Alternatively contact Catherine Ryan Catherine.Ryan@stmw.school.nz  or Stephen Corkill – BOT Chair bot@stmw.school.nz.  

If you have any questions about the election process please feel free to contact Penny Cole on returning-officer@stmw.school.nz.

New Zealand Transport Agency and the Wellington City Council are making changes to Hawkestone Street to prevent commuters from using the intersection as a shortcut to skip ahead of queues when travelling southbound on SH1.  The following map (which is from the NZTA website) shows the proposed new layout.
