The Cashmere Primary School Board of Trustees comprises six parent representatives (this number is reviewed prior to each Board of Trustees election), the principal, staff trustee and co-opted trustees for a specific purpose and time as required. The school adopted the staggered election system in 2001.
All elected Board of Trustees positions are for a three-year term with elections occurring every 18 months (4/2 split). This system may be reviewed in election years and may be dispensed with by the way of a resolution passed at a Board of Trustees meeting. There was an election in 2014 and the next one will be in 2016. Canterbury Education Services has acted as our returning officer since 2001.
