You may be aware that Papakura High School has been under Limited Statutory Management since January 2014 and other forms of intervention since 2009, this means there has been a Ministry of Education appointed advisor to the Principal and Board in place.
As of today, 1 September 2021, the Minister of Education's delegate is now satisfied that this intervention is no longer required and has revoked the notice directing the appointment of the LSM. You can view the notice here. https://gazette.govt.nz/notice/id/2021-go3632
The Ministry of Education commented “The Board's progress is commendable. It is clear from the review material received by the Ministry that governance roles and responsibilities have been clarified and embedded, the Board has satisfactorily addressed its responsibility and reporting.”
I am pleased that the hard work of school staff and the Board over a number of years has led to this recognition. This is another positive step for our Papakura High School community in having confidence in our school to provide a quality education for our tauira.
A special thanks to Sally Dalzell, our Limited Statutory Manager since 2017, for her work towards achieving the goal of self-governance.
