It has been determined by the Board to have eight members for 2023 as follows:

  • Three staff members

  • The Principal


  • The Board establishes and reviews from time to time the school’s objectives, priorities and general policy directions

The meetings are held in the school conference room once per term.  Extraordinary meetings may occur, as determined by the Board, to consider issues as they arise.

Each year, an advertised open meeting is planned where the Board provides a report of the year’s efforts and achievements for parents and community members to discuss, provide feedback and input for the future Board to address and act upon if required.
