The Weston School Board of Trustees comprises:

Five elected parent representatives Stefan Mavor  (Presiding Member),  Nikki Mackay, Vicki Henderson, Nick Webster, Mark Yeates, Hamish McKenzie (Co-opted member)  along with Deidre Senior Principal and Kathryn Sim (Staff Trustee, elected by the staff).

Board members are elected for a 3 year term. The Board typically meets every 6 weeks (working around school holidays breaks) which equates to approximately 10 meetings a year. The meetings are held in public and the meeting dates are published on the school website. On occasion there may be an in-committee section on the Agenda where the public will be excluded.

The Board is responsible for the school’s performance, and for ensuring that all legal requirements are met. The Board’s primary focus is to ensure ongoing improvement in student achievement outcomes for all students.

The Board’s emphasis is strategic rather than administrative. All trustees come to the Board table entrusted to ensure effective governance, despite the different perspectives they bring to board discussions. Trustees are neither advocates nor delegates, but work for positive outcomes for all learners. Trustees are not the immediate point of contact for parent concerns. These should be dealt in accordance with the complaints policy available on the school website.
