The Board of Trustees is made up of the Principal, Proprietor Trustees, Parent Trustees, a Staff Trustee, and a Student Trustee. Parent and Staff Trustees are elected every three years, the student Trustee is elected annually, and the Proprietor Trustees are appointed by our College Proprietor.


The Board of Trustees is a Crown entity and is responsible for the governance of our College. The role of our Trustees is to ensure the College has a clear sense of purpose by establishing its strategic objectives, documenting these objectives in a College charter, and monitoring progress in achieving these objectives.


The Board closely monitors students achievement to assure themselves that students are receiving a high quality standard of education, and that resources are being used prudently to ensure the highest possible quality programmes are provided for our students.


The Board of Trustees is committed to the College’s Special Character – the Mercy charism that is an integral part of Villa Maria College. As well as maintaining the traditions of Catherine McAuley and the Sisters of Mercy, the Board is especially focused on students’ achievements – whether this is inside the classroom, out on the sporting field, or on stage. Every girl is encouraged to strive to do her very best in all aspects of College life, and the Board is extremely proud of these achievements.


As a Mercy school, the Board is committed to honouring the key principles inherent in te Tiriti o Waitangi – partnership, participation and protection, to ensure that we enhance taha tinana (physical), hauora (wellbeing) taha wairua (spiritual) and taha whānau.
