Our Policies And Procedures

Since 1989, New Zealand schools have been governed by Boards of Trustees as part of the Tomorrow’s Schools reform. Over the last couple of decades, a large number of parents, whānau and other community members have given their time and expertise to strengthen the direction and performance of Riwaka School.

We are fortunate to have a strong, passionate and committed Board of Trustees.

The main priorities of the board are to ensure we are doing our utmost for all learners at Riwaka School in terms of their progress and well-being.

The direction of our school is driven by our Strategic Plan which is collaboratively created with our community, staff and board and provides a ‘roadmap’ which gives the board and management an informed direction of what actions are to take place in the school to further improve outcomes for our tamariki. Our effectiveness is measured by both internal evaluation as well as evaluation by outside agencies, ERO (Education Review Office) and the Office of the Auditor General NZ.
