General

  • ​ A copy of the monthly minutes is kept on the school foyer notice board. Back copies are available from the office.
  • The Board agenda and reports are collated prior to meetings. For this reason correspondence to the Board needs to be in five days in advance. If this deadline cannot be met urgent matters can be referred to the Chairperson.
  • Concerns should first be addressed to the relevant staff member, and then the Principal, before reaching Board level. Board members are happy to informally discuss concerns but, to be officially acted upon, they must be put in writing.
  • Board members are parents elected by other parents to represent their families' interests and to act on their behalf. Boards are elected for a three-year term in an 18 month cycle retaining half the Board each election.
