College Board

College Board

The school board is a pastoral body consisting of parent members, the Principal, the Parish Pastoral Leader and staff members.

Catholic Education boards were established primarily as a response to requests by parents to be more active participants in Catholic Schooling. The function of the school board is to support the Principal and advise on matters of existing policy and in the formation of new policies. A sharing wisdom process of discernment is the basis of the Board’s decision making.

Parent members of the Board are elected for a two year period and are chosen for their faith dimension and specific talents such as financial expertise, pastoral wisdom, managerial experience and local knowledge.

The School Board is an open and effective body which welcomes any questions, comments, suggestions or ideas you may have.
