The school board is a formal mechanism for parents, carers, and staff to participate in school decision-making.  The Board is responsible for the school’s strategic direction while operational matters are the responsibility of the Principal


The functions of the school board include:

  • establishing the strategic direction and priorities of the school
  • monitoring, reviewing and reporting on school performance
  • developing, maintaining and reviewing curriculum for the school
  • establishing budgetary policies for the school and approving the school budget
  • establishing policies for the efficient and effective use of school assets and the management of financial risk
  • developing relationships between the school, the community and community organisations; and
  • encouraging parent participation in their children’s learning
