Announcement : 

BOT and Proprietors

School Board 

As a state-integrated school, we have a School Board made up of elected parents, appointed Proprietor representatives, a staff representative and the Principal. The BOT is charged (by the Crown) with governing the school – setting its direction and ensuring it is meeting the expressed intentions through good stewardship of the resources the school has.

Currently the School board has the following members:

John van Ameyde – Presiding Member (Chair) – Proprietor appointee 

Warren Rosser – Parent Elected Representative

Natalie Sterne – Parent Elected Representative

Ruth Murray – Proprietor appointee

Kim Coleman – Staff elected Representative

Alistair McKinnon – Principal      

Lucy Harema – Parent Elected Representative

Shawn Liu – Parent Elected Representative

John Hastie – Proprietor appointee 


Board of Proprietors

As a state integrated school, we are owned by the Proprietors of the school not the Government. The Proprietors are a trust who are charged with the protection of the special character of the school. They also own and develop the land and buildings of the school. The attendance dues charged by the Proprietors are a compulsory fee that all parents must pay each year. This fee goes to the Proprietors (not the Board of Trustees) and can only be used for the development of the land and buildings.

The proprietors of Emmanuel Christian School are the Emmanuel Proprietors Trust (EPT)
