Welcome to the Avondale College Board of Trustees page.

The Board of Trustees exists primarily to govern the school on behalf of the community and as such we are tasked with continuously improving student progress and achievement outcomes through strategic leadership and direction to the school. The College’s Charter, containing the Strategic Plan (2014–2016), sets out our values and those characteristics that make Avondale College unique.

The Board is made up of members from a wide cross-section of society. We are accountable to the parents, students, the crown and our community to ensure that the school delivers on its strategic objectives.

Below is a link to the Avondale College Charter, which includes:

·       The Avondale College Strategic Plan 2014–2016

·       The Avondale College Goals

An important part of a Board’s role is self-review. As part of this process, we welcome your feedback on our Charter, the Strategic Plan, and our Goals. We also welcome feedback on our Policies and on any aspect of our governance and leadership.

If you wish to bring matters to our attention, we invite you to email the Board of Trustees on zsle@avcol.school.nz.  This address is that of the Board Secretary and will be forwarded to the Board Chair and the wider Board as necessary.

Board Workplan

The Board is currently finalising a Workplan  which we will publish soon. This workplan will outline our programme for the next 12 months. It will also confirm the times and dates of Board meetings which are not public meetings, but they are held in public and members of the community can attend. The Workplan will detail when we intend to review certain policies or goals in the charter, a subject or department in the College, or the achievement of priority learners in the school (including Maori, Pasifika or special needs). This transparency should allow the community to make more timely submissions to the Board on their areas of concern.

We value all feedback in reviewing the operations of the school, so that we improve the way we operate in order to better support student progress and achievement.
