The board members strive to support the staff in the work that they do, both recognising and commending the excellent professional and pastoral reputation of the school teaching team.
Modelling our actions on the example of Jesus
who came to serve, not to be served.
The board is responsible not only to the local school community, but also to the Catholic Education Commission of WA for the financial administration of the school. It is also entrusted with the duty of planning, on behalf of the school community, with the school staff (through the Principal) and with the Commission to meet the present and future needs of students.
At the beginning of each school year a board is inducted and commissioned. Board members are supported by the Catholic Education Office of WA, and are given access to training and appropriate information courses.
The role of the School’s Board is one of setting the long term future for the school and in providing additional expertise to help the school achieve the best outcome for every student.
Taking on a position with the School Board is a wonderful way for parents to get involved and help shape the school. In addition to the normal Executive roles, the School Board also appoint a range of sub-committees, giving parents a chance to utilise their business expertise or other specialisations to ensure a rewarding and bright future for our students.
The School Board has 10 members consisting of six parent representatives that are elected for a two year term at the Annual General Meeting, a P & F Representative, a St Francis Xavier Parish Representative, the School Principal and the Parish Priest.
The School Board meets monthly throughout the school year. The School Board communicates its activities to the school community by providing a summary of the meetings in the newsletter.
