The College Board has responsibility under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 for making educational policy decisions. Decisions are made using normal voting procedures (see Council Standing Orders – Section 2.5). The Board is assisted in the processes associated with the responsibility by its Finance and Facilities Committees, which use participative and consensus decision making processes.
The College Board meet twice every term on Wednesday evenings. Annual elections are conducted. Parents are represented on the Board and can nominate themselves or be nominated for positions when vacancies arise. Positions are of a two-year duration. For more information about the College Board, please contact the Principal.
