The Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees (BOT) provide the governance of our school – they oversee what is occurring within the school. The Board and Principal work together to achieve the best possible learning and teaching outcomes for the students. Some of the Boards roles include:

Setting the Vision, Philosophy and Values of the school

Developing and reviewing the general policy direction

Monitoring and evaluating student learning outcomes

Providing financial stewardship and overseeing resources

Approving major policies and programme initiatives

Building a broad base of community support

Managing Risk

The Board of Trustees includes five elected trustees, the staff trustee and the principal. Our current Board members are: Jenny Warren (Chairperson), Danielle Maclean (Principal), Kris Burbery, Vanessa Wilson, Justine Street, Lee Brind and Lauren Shuker (Staff Trustee).

The Board meets approximately once a month to discuss the strategic direction of the school and to evaluate student outcomes. Parents and caregivers are welcome to attend the meetings.

Our Vision is: “Nurturing Confident, future-focused Learners”
