Pursuant to section 170(5) of the Education and Training Act 2020, and acting with authority delegated by the Minister of Education, I declare invalid the 20 August 2020 by-election for a parent representative for the Tiniroto School (2705) Board, and require a new election to be held on Wednesday 11 November 2020.
I further declare that the board members holding office on 20 August 2020 remain in office.
As the by-election was triggered by a casual vacancy, the position will remain vacant until the new trustee takes office following the new election.
This notice takes effect on the date of publication.
Dated at Wellington this 28th day of August 2020.
HELEN HURST, Associate Deputy Secretary, Operational Delivery, Sector Enablement and Support, Ministry of Education.
