Nominations are open for the election of 5 parent representatives and 1 staff representative to the school board.
Your nomination form is attached as below.
You can use this form to nominate yourself or someone else in your community. We have nomination forms available in Te Reo Māori and some other languages. Please contact the returning officer if these are required.
Nominating yourself or someone else
If you are on the voting roll and eligible to vote, you can nominate yourself. Please remember to sign both parts of the form.
If you are nominating someone else, complete the nomination form and make sure it includes all the required contact details and signatures.
You can post, hand deliver or email your nomination form/s to the returning officer (see details below).
Nominations close at noon on Wednesday August 3 2022.
Information on who is not eligible to be a board member is enclosed.
If you are a candidate, you are invited to submit an optional statement (up to 400 words) and photo. Make sure your statement is received by noon on Thursday 4 August 2022 so that it can be sent to voters with the voting papers. The returning officer may remove or edit any part of the candidate’s statement if it exceeds 400 words or is offensive or defamatory.
The electoral roll is held at the school office and can be viewed during normal school hours.
Anyone can stand for election to the board, except for some exclusions. Please check information on who is not eligible. If not enclosed, ask the returning officer for this. If you are not on the voting roll you must be nominated by a person who is.
A candidate may nominate a person to sit with the returning officer during the vote count to make sure it is done correctly. Scrutineers are also required for electronic elections if a recount is needed. Please advise the returning officer in writing of your scrutineer’s name and contact details before election day. Candidates cannot be scrutineers.
