Kia ora koutou,
Matua School is served by a wonderful group of parents that make up our Board of Trustees. We would like to welcome Craig Williams to the Board of Trustees. Craig has been appointed by ‘selection’ due to a vacancy mid-cycle. Craig brings a number of skills to the team, including expertise in finance and management.
