The School Board plays an important role in contributing to good school governance so that school resources are used efficiently and community expectations and the school’s priorities reflect the needs of students. The functions of the School Board are covered by legislation and include both approval and advisory roles. Some of the matters the Board makes decisions on include fees and charges, book lists, sponsorship and dress codes. The Board makes these decisions with the Principal who ensures the decisions adhere to legislative and policy requirements.
The School Board, comprising of the Principal and elected staff, parent and community representatives, meets twice each term, in Weeks 4 and 8. Interested members of the school community are welcome to attend Board meetings as observers.

2018 SCHOOL BOARD PARENT SURVEY
Please see the link below for the Parent Survey. The survey will be open for two weeks; closing on 30 November. We urge all parents to please have your say as this will assist us with our 2019 planning. There are five prizes for students (randomly drawn) whose parents return the survey of a $20 book voucher. Please put the name of the student on the return slip (see link below) and hand it in to the school office for a chance to go in the prize draw. There is also a prize for the class with the highest return on surveys. Last year we had an amazing response to our survey so we encourage all families to complete it!
