Our Governance

Tui, tui, tuia! Tuia ki runga, tuia ki raro, tuia ki roto, tuia ki waho. Tui tui tuia!

Sew, stitch, bind it together! From above, from below, from within, from without.

The Board have range of skills and expertise from HR to education, Police to schools. This combination of personal and professional skills delivers the highest level of governance to our organisation.
