Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is the legal body governing the school. The Board consists of seven elected members, one co-opted member, plus two staff members, one the Principal and one member elected by the staff. The Principal is automatically a member of the Board.
The Board currently meets twice a term at 7.00 pm in the school Staffroom. The Board writes school policies as the elected representatives of the parents, administers the school in accordance with the charter, administers the Government grant given each year, prepares annual budgets and maintains accounts. The Board employs staff and maintains school property.
