School Board

Kia Ora Koutou

The new School Board was elected in August 2022 and while some long serving members have left, some new faces will bring fresh eyes and ears to ensure Malfroy School continues to be a great place of learning for our children.

A big thank you to out-going trustees Margaret Metcalfe, Jennie McLaren and Toby Brash, who have put in many hours of personal time and energy for the benefit of the school community. Special mention must go to Margaret for her strong leadership and commitment as chair of the Board. 

Welcome to new members Awhina Kihi (Staff Rep), Rotiki Williams and Andrew Dunningham who have joined members Ngapi Coffin and Karena Ngata. 

Being a member of the board is a privilege that every one of our members takes very seriously.
