The role of the Board
The following material is taken from the Ministry of Education document “Working in Partnership”: “Boards of trustees are responsible for the governance of schools. The role of a trustee is to ensure that the school is run in the best interests of the students and community.”
Contacting the Board
Members of the school community are always welcome to contact the Board. The easiest way is through the school office. Correspondence to the Board should be addressed to the Chair. However, please note that issues of concern relating to specific children or school staff should always be raised in the first instance with those most directly involved, and with school management.
Board meetings are held on the 3rd and 9th Tuesday of every term, although some meeting dates are shifted to avoid school holidays. They are usually held in the Staff Room at the Main School at 7:00 pm. Board meetings are held in public, and anyone is able to attend. An Agenda for the Board meeting is posted on notice boards at both school sites in the week prior to the meeting. Copies of Board papers can be obtained from the school office.
