The request was successful.

From: john luke

Dear Chris Hipkins,

I noted on the website,

https://www.nhs.school.nz/wp-content/upl...

The new Board will take office 18 Sep-22.
An election process will occur for the Staff Representative position and an impartial Returning Officer will be appointed by the Board for this purpose.
All other Board Member positions are appointed by the MOE. Current Board Members are reminded they must reapply should they wish to be considered for nomination.

Can you please let me know where did you call for public expression of interest for board positions and how many application you have received. Within the application you have received, how many are new applications from public and how many are current member reapply?

As per the minutes, The new Board will take office 18 Sep-22. I presume the process is about to finish, how many you have shortlisted and interviewed?

Also, may I request the current pay rate for board member and position description.

Yours faithfully,

john luke

Kia ora,

On behalf of Hon Chris Hipkins, thank you for your email.  Please accept
this as acknowledgement that your email has been received by my office.

While the Minister considers all correspondence to be important, and all

personally reply to all emails. 

As such, the following guidelines apply:

o Invitations and meeting requests will be processed as soon as possible
and a staff member will be in contact with you in due course
o All media queries will be responded to by a staff member
o Requests for official information will be managed in accordance with
the provisions of the Official Information Act 1982, which may include
transfer to a more relevant Minister or agency
o If your email falls outside of the Minister’s portfolio
responsibilities, expresses a personal view, or is copied to multiple
Members of Parliament, then your opinion will be noted and your
correspondence may be transferred to another office, or there may be
no further response to you

Thank you for the taking the time to write.

Nga mihi,

Office of Hon Chris Hipkins
