A Board of Trustee's Perspective

Martin Glaeser has been a member of the Board of Trustees at St Brigid's for 4-5 years and has been the chair for the last two years. His two children have attended the school and Martin enjoys the community interaction that the role brings. He has found the work with principal and staff satisfying. He talks with David Stewart about the Ariki Project and the chart that is referred to is available on the Project News page.

The conversation explores themes of school and principal accountability; the connection of principal intentions with classroom practice; how the project had impacted on the Board's thinking regarding principal appraisal; the board's response to professional conversations beginning predominately with examples of evidence of practice; and the extent to which this Ariki Project had influenced both the culture of the school and importantly the raising of student attainment.
