A Message from the Presiding Member
The School Board (formerly the Board of Trustees) are responsible for governance of the school. This includes being responsible for the school’s performance, ensuring all legal requirements are met, setting the vision for the school, giving effect to Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and that all children at the school reach their highest potential learning achievement.
At Newmarket School we are fortunate to have a very experienced principal and deputy principal, along with wonderful teachers and staff who are focussed on ākonga (student) learning and wellbeing. Children are exposed to wide range of activities at Newmarket School including, education outside the classroom, sports, languages, music and digital technology, giving our students strong roots from which to grow.
