School Board

Paparangi School is governed by the School Board. These board members make important decisions about our school’s strategic direction, student progress, management, school culture and more.

Being a board member is an important and rewarding role. Parents, caregivers and people who believe in making a positive difference to all children’s learning can put themselves forward to become a board member at the elections held every three years (next elections are due in 2025).

The Paparangi School Board of Trustees meets twice a term. Meeting times and dates are advised on the school’s online calendar of events and in school newsletters.

Board meetings are public and members of the school community are welcome to attend. Should you wish to have speaking rights at a Board meeting, it is requested that the topic, who is speaking and an appropriate contact number be advised to the Board of Trustees Secretary via the school office by the Wednesday before the meeting date advertised.

If you would like to contact the board, the office staff will be happy to provide contact details. The current Board Members are:

  1. Board Chair/Presiding Member– Helen Ashton
  2. Duncan Kennington
  3. Gary Mitchell
  4. Richard Ng
  5. Roshane Samarasekerea
  6. Principal – Tracey Arthurs
