School Board

The role of the Board is that of involvement in the governance of the school.  This means taking part in the shaping and monitoring of the school’s objectives, priorities and general policy directions.  In addition, other functions are specified in the legislation.

The Board does not have a role in school management.  This is the responsibility of the Principal and involves educational leadership and the effective day-to-day administration, supervision and control of the school and its staff.
