What skills do Board Members need?
Board members (they used to be called ‘trustees’ or ‘the BoT’) are active leaders in the kura/school.
People often think board members need to have a legal or business background, but that’s not the case at all. The most valuable skills parents or whanau can bring to the board table are:
- Working well as part of a team
- Not afraid to ask challenging questions
- Having good communication skills
- Being connected to their community
