Unfortunately, due to work commitments, our elected board representative Amanda Magnus has resigned her position from the Te Atatū Intermediate Board of Trustees. We thank Amanda for her service over two terms to our school, and she was farewelled at our last meeting.
We will be following the due process outlined by the School Trustee Association, whereby;
- Within 14 days of making the decision to select someone, the board must publish, in a newspaper circulating in the area of the school, a notice of the vacancy and the resolution to fill it by selection. The wording of the notice is below.
- If within 28 days after the notice is published, fewer than ten percent of eligible voters have asked the board not to make a selection but to hold a by-election, then the board may fill the vacancy by selecting someone. This selection must be made within six weeks of the end of the 28-day notification period and the person selected takes office on the day of selection by the board.
Below is a copy of the advert placed in the Western Leader on 3rd October. The 28 day notification period ends Thursday 31 October.
