2017 Trustee Study Awards - recipients

There was keen interest in the 2017 awards, and the panel selected the following two applications.

Andrew Henderson, parent-elected trustee and board chair at Aidanfield Christian School, NZSTA Canterbury Region
Andrew will enrol in the Essentials of Governance programme provided by the NZ Institute of Directors, which comprises four separate workshops; Governance Essentials, Risk Essentials, Strategy Essentials and Finance Essentials. Learning more about these topics will help Andrew to expand his knowledge and ability in leading his board through the coming years.

Maureen Mua, parent-elected trustee and board chair at Richmond School, NZSTA Central East Region
Maureen will attend and present at the World Indigenous Peoples Conference on Education in Toronto, in July 2017. The workshop which Maureen will help to facilitate will focus on culturally responsive and relational pedagogy within a community of schools, along with utilising powerful connections with whanau and iwi for student achievement. Maureen has been involved in the set-up of a Community of Learning called ‘Matariki’, where the ultimate goal is to strengthen the community and support students in their education from early childhood to tertiary level. So sharing their workshop on a global level will help to empower leaders in the community.
