Further information on being the Student Representative

As a board member, the student representative will:

· learn new skills

· have their say on important issues

· make a positive contribution to their school and community.

· Influence the future of their school

· Gain valuable knowledge and experience for their future, which will look great on your CV.

The idea of being a young person on a school board might seem daunting, but student representatives get plenty of help and support to learn about and fulfil their role. The New Zealand School Trustees Association (NZSTA) provides training and learning opportunities, guidance and resources.

Please talk to the returning officer if you have questions.
