About Our School

School Board

The role of a School Board is one of setting the long term future of the school and maintaining oversight of the school’s operation. We generally meet twice a term at 9am on a Thursday and meetings usually run for 1 hour. Membership is open to Parents/Carers, Grandparents, Guardians and Community members.

Some of the responsibilities of an Independent Public School Board are to

  • Contribute to the Business plan
  • Endorse and review the annual budget
  • Create interest in the school within and across the community
  • Approve fees, charges and personal items lists

Role of School Board members

  • Parent members of the Board bring their experience as parents at the school, and the views and context of the wider school community to Board meetings
  • Community members bring a particular skill to the Board. This may include business, accounting or building skills, or some other skill that the school is looking for at the time
  • Department of Education employees bring their educational expertise to Board meetings

The School Board does not

  • Manage the day to day running of the school
  • Discuss individual issues relating to teachers, staff or parents
  • Represent specific interest groups, or permit special interests to dominate the agenda
  • Intervene in the education instruction of students
