The Board of Trustees is responsible for seven key work areas in the school, which are:

The School Board of Trustees is composed of  parent/community members, Principal and Staff Representative. 

The members are responsible for governing this school through:

Meetings are usually held twice a term in the school library.  Any items for discussion must be brought to the attention of the Chairperson or Principal at least seven days prior to the meeting day.  Meeting days and times are notified in the newsletter.

Minutes of all meetings are kept in the School Office and are available for perusal.


Board members are elected to act on behalf of the school’s community to ensure that the school continuously improves student progress and achievement. 

Board work is primarily about governance of the school. Governance involves setting strategic direction through our vision, core values and strategic goals. Core work of the board includes setting targets and tracking student progress. This also includes regular review of curriculum areas. The board monitors financial expenditure of the school and sets a yearly budget. We also establish long term property plans and prioritize property projects with allocated funds.

The Board of Trustees is responsible for ensuring the school complies with all legal directives made by the government and the Ministry of Education. This is done by ensuring we have robust policies and procedures in place. There is a clearly documented line between board work and management work. Boards of trustees govern (oversee management) and principals manage the school. It is not the role of the Board of Trustees to be involved in the day-to-day operation of the school, this is the responsibility of the principal and the school staff.

From time to time the Board, Staff and School Community review policies and procedures. This gives all stakeholders the opportunity to have a say in how certain aspects of the school and currculum are managed. 

When required to do so, you will be notified in the newsletter of which policy we are reviewing and you can access the SchoolDocs website and review the policy and leave comment where appropriate.
