Leading with ambition on behalf of every child

Our Board of Trustees is made up of five parent representatives who visit the school each week to keep up to date with any events or issues relating to student learning and well being. The principal and one staff representative are also part of the Board.  


Formal Board meetings are open to the public and take place usually twice a term. Dates are advertised in the school newsletter. These meetings deal with matters such as finance, staffing, property development and future planning. The members also develop and review school policies and procedures. Contact if you would like to know when our next Board meeting is.


The current parent representatives are Sue Brannigan (Chairperson), Elizabeth Bourne (Treasurer), Sarah Crowe, Faith Reynolds and Alexander Pallas.
