Notice of Vacancy for Parent Rep on the Board

Kia ora PBS whānau

A vacancy has occurred on the PBS Board for an elected parent representative as a result of the recent resignation of a trustee.

The Board has decided to fill this vacancy by selection, which means we would love to hear from any parent/whānau member who is interested in joining our team.  Further information about the process is available at

Please note:  Even though the Board wishes to fill the vacancy by selection, if 10% or more of eligible voters on the school roll ask the Board, within 28 days of this notice being published, to hold a by-election to fill the vacancy, then a by-election will be held instead.  If less than 10% of eligible voters request a by-election, the Board will confirm at the end of the 28-day notification period that the vacancy will be filled by a selection process. The Board will then explain how those interested in being considered for the role can apply.

The Board must select a person to be a trustee within six weeks of the end of the 28-day notification period.  The Board will be seeking a trustee in line with the criteria set out in Schedule 23 clause 1 of the Education and Training Act 2020, including that the Board reflects the ethnic and socio-economic diversity of the student community, and the character of the community served by the school.

If you wish to request that a by-election occur, instead of a selection process, please send a request by 23 April 2021 to:

Zoe Pearson (Chairperson)
Board of Trustees, Paraparaumu Beach School
65 Gray Avenue, Paraparaumu Beach 5032
or email:

If you have further questions about the process or the role of a Board Trustee, please email Zoe at the email above, or leave a message with the school office.

Current trustees will also be available at the Parent Information Evening on Tuesday, 30 March 2021 to answer any questions about the role you might have.
