Board of Trustees

Welcome to the Board of Trustees

The current board of trustees is composed of five members of the local school community, plus the school principal, a teacher representative and a board secretary. Most members of the board have been elected directly by the community to represent them; one board members has been co-opted by the board. All members of the board are volunteers.

The board represents the school community and is responsible for the governance of the school. As a board we set the general direction of the school through the creation of school policies. The principal is then responsible for the management of the school. This requires the principal to handle the day-to-day running of the school and to implement the board policies through curriculum plans, school procedures etc.

In 2019 the board will be meeting on the following dates:

 

January 31
February 28
March 28
May 2
May 23
June 27
July 25
August 29
September 26
October 24
November 21

 

 

Board meetings start at 7.00pm.

 

 

All meetings are open to the public, and all members of the public are very welcome. However, if you wish to speak at a board meeting then you need to obtain speaking rights. There are definite procedures around speaking rights. If you wish to speak at a meeting then contact the board chairman or board secretary well before the meeting and they will give you the information you require. If you are just coming to observe, then no notice is required; you can just come along. Just be aware that if the board needs to discuss some private issues the board can move into 'Publicly Excluded Business (PEB)', at which time any members of the public attending the meeting will be required to leave temporarily. Once the publicly excluded business is concluded then the public will be invited back into the meeting.
