School Board and Annual General Meeting
Our next school board meeting is Monday, 4th March.
The School Board AGM will be held on Monday, 25th March, at 6.30 pm. Reports will be tabled at the beginning of the meeting, elections for new members will be held, and those elected will remain for the meeting.
We are also calling for nominations for the school board.
The school board does not require a huge commitment. It is two meetings each school term (6.30 - 8 pm, on a Monday evening). The school board is important in shaping policy and the school's future direction. It is a vital part of parent voice and is a great chance to meet other parents, offer ideas and discuss school planning. We are looking for people who can think strategically or provide insights into specific areas such as finance or marketing. If you would like to know more about the specific roles of office bearers on a school board, please refer to the following link: School Board Responsibilities.
Please call Leesa Angove in the Administration office if you’d like further information about nominating for a position on the School Board in 2024-2025.
Nominations must be made before the AGM.
There is also some information about school boards at School Boards.
