School Board

School Board

The School Board has an overall pastoral responsibility of caring for our community. It sets guidelines for the overall management of the school and is responsible for overseeing finances and facilities.

Six elected parent representatives join the principal, parish priest, Parents and Friends representative, staff representative and parish administrator to make up the Board. Each year at least three parent representatives are elected, serving a term of two years.

The Board’s activities include:

  • Policy Direction – assisting the principal and staff with the formulation of school policies and educational objectives.
  • Financial Management – through its finance committee, the school board oversees the financial administration of the school
  • Planning – for the future, as well as devoting itself to day to day management
  • Pastoral Care – caring for the whole school community; parents, students and staff
  • Evaluation – the effects of its policy decisions
