Te Totara Primary School - Growing and Learning Together


This year there is a Board of Trustees election coming up in September and we wanted to give everyone plenty of opportunity to think about standing for the Board. 

Nomination Round

Our school will be undertaking a parent election for 5 School Board vacancies. This process will start with the issuing of nomination papers to our caregiver community by Friday 15th July, 2022.

We have employed CES to undertake the election process on our behalf. This year with legislative change, our nomination form and full instruction on how to place your nomination

into our own School’s Election website will be emailed to you if we have your email address in our database or you will receive it by post if we don’t have your email in our database.

Nomination papers will also be available at the School Office.  The school will send those on

to CES for processing upon receipt from candidates.

Nominations close on Wednesday 3rd August at 12 noon. Election day is Wednesday 7th September, 2022.

We look forward to your participation in this process.
