Governance

schooldocs

Our school works with SchoolDocs who host a website for our policies and procedures that is available to our school community.

The school works on a subscription basis with SchoolDocs to maintain, update, and review our policies. SchoolDocs provides us with a comprehensive core set of policies and procedures which are tailored to our school, have been well researched and follow the Ministry of Education National Administration Guidelines.

SchoolDocs updates, modifies, or creates policies in response to changes in legislation or Ministry guidelines, significant events, reviews/requests from schools, and regular reviewing from the SchoolDocs team. Our Board of Trustees follows the SchoolDocs triennial review schedule at each meeting.

We invite you to visit the site at http://hingaiapeninsula.schooldocs.co.nz/ (note that there's no "www"!). Our username is hingaiapeninsula and password schooldocs.

Kia Ora

I'm Nayan Makan and have been on the Board as a parent elected member since 2016 when my daughter started school.

My career has predominantly centered around the Financial Services sector in London and Auckland, with a strong focus in recent years being in risk, compliance and regulatory advisory services.

The school has achieved so much in its relatively short existence and this is largely down to the commitment, drive and passion of the staff and its pupils. As board members, we are responsible to support and lead the development of the school in line with the values set out in our charter, to implement and maintain an effective governance structure, and to support leaders to ensure each student realises their full potential.

Our community is evolving and growing at a rapid rate and hence we all have a role to play to ensure that we're providing our children with the best possible opportunities to fulfil their potential on their learning pathways in these changing times.

Kimiora

My name is Kimiora McKenzie-Downey and this is my first term as a parent trustee on the Hingaia Peninsula School Board of Trustees. My partner and I have two sons currently in Years 2 and 3 at Hingaia Peninsula School. I joined the Board of Trustees because I felt that through my previous career experience in the banking industry I could make a useful contribution to the strategic direction and governance of the school. I believe that all children should be given the opportunity to learn in the way that best meets their needs and enables their success - being on the Board of Trustees enables me to play a part in the achievement of this goal.

Simon

Hi, I am Simon Mowday, I have had an association with the school as a parent since 2012, with three boys having been at the school. I am a second term elected parent representative and my motivation for being on the Board is to see the school realise it's potential as both a learning environment and a community centric resource. My professional background is in supply chain leadership in both the public and private sector. I have enjoyed seeing the growth of the Karaka residential areas and excited by the opportunities this brings our children.
