On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I am proud to welcome you to our thriving school, in
particular, a special welcome to those families joining the Pasadena Community for the first time.
We expect that you and your children will enjoy all that Pasadena Intermediate School has to offer.

The Board is here to ensure that your child receives the highest quality education possible, with the
Board’s major focus being on strategies for the future of Pasadena Intermediate School. In addition, the
Board monitors the school’s progress against current plans and budgets.

To indicate our progress in this regard, the most recent Education Review Office Report ( November 2017)
again confirms that Pasadena not only offers the highest quality 21st Century educational programmes, it
also provides a safe, secure, inclusive and happy environment for our students.

Please contact us via email through either of the links below if you want to discuss the
Board’s activities, or, you are more than welcome to attend any of our meetings. The current members of
the Board are: Mandy Tubman (Chairperson),  Richard Green, Jill Pitches, Shelly Pathak,  Stacey Morrison, Tipene Lemon, Jerome Brown
(Staff Trustee) and  Jonathan Hughes (Principal)

Alternatively, please read copies of the School Charter, School Plan, Policies, Procedures and ERO
Reports which are available from the school office, and on the school website.

Please note, we do not get involved in the day-to-day management of the school; the Principal, Jonathan
Hughes and his team has this responsibility. They should be your first point of contact for any
issues about the school that you wish to discuss.

Finally, we are constantly reviewing our communication processes with our families to make
improvements as necessary. We invite you to keep in touch with all school activities and involve
yourselves more closely with one or two if you can. Newsletters are published five times a term and
are packed with information! They are also available for reading on our Website.

I look forward to seeing you at Pasadena Intermediate School.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees
