Information for perspective candidates

Candidate profiles:

All perspective candidates for the Board of Trustees are encouraged to put forward a profile preferably through the Canterbury Education Services (CES) website at . Photographs will not be used if submitted. The reason for this is simply that we format all candidate statements into a profile sheet, these are reduced in size, and printed in black and white. We simply can’t guarantee reproductive quality particularly as photos vary in quality. The CES will give a copy of all profiles received to the school for use in newsletters and other material when promoting the upcoming Board of Trustee Elections.
