The College Board plays an important role in contributing to good school governance so that College resources are used efficiently¬†and community expectations and the College’s priorities reflect the needs of students.

The Board is comprised of a cross section of the College community including parents, teaching staff, community members and students (only when students are aged 15 years and over or are turning 15 in that year).

Some of the matters our College Board may make decisions on include fees and charges, book lists, sponsorship and dress codes. Boards make these decisions with the principal who ensures the decisions adhere to legislative and policy requirements. Principals also seek the advice of their school boards so as to understand local community views.

The College Board does not intervene in the control or management of the school. This is the role of the principal.

Elections for new board members will be held in April/May each year.
