The Board of Trustees is responsible for the governance of the school and meets regularly at school.

Meetings are usually held on the Monday closest to the 20th of each month. If there is any change parents/caregivers will be notified through the regular school newsletter.
Parents are welcome to attend any meetings.

The Trustee Handbook section A (Members Only) states that Governance is where:

“The board is entrusted to work on behalf of all stakeholders and is accountable for the school’s performance. It emphasises strategic leadership, sets the vision for the school, and ensures that it complies with legal and policy requirements. Policies are at a governance level and outline clear delegations to the principal.

The board and principal form the leadership team, with the role of each documented and understood. The principal reports to the board as a whole with committees used sparingly and only when a need is identified in order to contribute to board work. The board is proactive rather than reactive in its operations and decision making and does not involve itself in the administrative details of the day-to-day running of the school. The board is encouraged to ask the right questions. Enhancing student achievement is its focus”.
