Board of Trustees

Tena Koutou Katoa

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would like to extend a warm welcome to our refurbished website. You will be able to:

  • access information about the school
  • your children's learning
  • upcoming events
  • the staff and
  • your current Board of Trustees

Briefly, the Board is currently made up of:

Parent Trustees:

  • Debbie Keung (Chair)
  • Andrew Greenslade (Vice Chair)
  • Paul Heremia
  • Bridget Fowles
  • Terrence Gunanayagam


  • Jennie Moore

Staff Trustee:

  • Lorrall Tippett

Board Secretary:

  • Christine Hutchby

The Board's primary role focuses specifically on the progress and improvement of student achievement. Therefore, ensuring ALL children at Papatoetoe South School experience academic success underpins the Board's decisions and actions. Together, with our Principal and staff, we constantly strive towards the vision of creating well rounded students who leave this school with the potential to become successful global citizens.

We are also responsible for the non-educational matters such as property and finance. An additional role this Board has committed itself to, is the building and maintaining of strong links with all our parents/whanau. Our monthly meetings are open to public attendance so I encourage you to take the opportunity to come along and see what we do. The school's newsletter and website will have the dates and times of these meetings. We do hope you take up our invitation to attend a Board meeting in the near future.

Working together, we have the power to make Papatoetoe South School the best educational experience for your children.
