Kinma AGM

Our AGM is held annually in each year prior to 31st May. Please download the papers from past AGMs:


Kinma Board

The School Board manages the school and has a maximum of ten and a minimum of six Board members. Board membership is comprised of up to six parents elected by and from the parent body, two community representatives (people outside the Kinma community who are interested in education or administration) and two people with “expert” skills. The Board administers all aspects of the school.

Parents apply to become members of Kinma Ltd when they enrol a child in primary school or have had a child in preschool for two years. Parents who have had a child in preschool for one year can also make special application to become a member. The Board will consider applications for membership at the next available Board meeting.

Any member is eligible to nominate as a director. The elections for the parent members of the Board are held at the Annual General Meeting each year.

Kinma Board meetings are open to parents to attend, although sensitive issues (e.g. discussion involving individual children, fee payments etc.) are held in a confidential session at the completion of other matters. Kinma Board meets every month at the School. Dates for the Board meetings can be found in the school’s newsletter and in our calendar.
