On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I am proud to welcome you to our thriving school, in particular, a special welcome to those families joining the Pasadena Community for the first time. We expect that you and your children will enjoy all that Pasadena Intermediate School has to offer.
The Board is here to ensure that your child receives the highest quality education possible, with the Board's major focus being on strategies for the future of Pasadena Intermediate School. In addition, the Board monitors the school's progress against current plans and budgets.
To indicate our progress in this regard, the most recent Education Review Office Report (2011) again confirms that Pasadena not only offers the highest quality 21st Century educational programmes, it also provides a safe, secure, inclusive and happy environment for our students.
Please contact us via the school Office if you want to discuss the Board's activities, or you are more than welcome to attend any of our meetings. The current members of the Board are: Antony Hobbs (Chairperson, Pt Chevalier), Lisa White (Staff Trustee), Anne Blaiklock (Pt Chevalier), Paul Cogswell (Westmere), Bridget Glasgow (Bridget Glasgow (Pt Chevalier), Felicity Stevens and Tony Walsh (Principal; Secretary)
Alternatively, please read copies of the School Charter, School Plan, Policies, Procedures and ERO Reports which are available from the school office, and on the school website.
Please note, we do not get involved in the day-to-day management of the school; the Principal, Tony Walsh, and his team has this responsibility. They should be your first point of contact for any issues about the school that you wish to discuss.
2013 is the triennial elections of Boards of Trustees. Elections will be held in May 2013 and the new Board will take office at the beginning of June. If you are interested in being involved on the Board, please contact the school or approach one of the current Board members directly.
Finally, we are constantly reviewing our communication processes with our families to make improvements as necessary. We invite you to keep in touch with all school activities and involve yourselves more closely with one or two if you can. Newsletters are published five times a term and are packed with information! They are also available for reading on our Website.
I look forward to seeing you at Pasadena Intermediate School.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees
