School Community

School Board

Catholic School Boards are advisory groups. They usually consist of eight to ten people, some of whom are parents/carers. The School Board does not take away from the role of the Parents' Association. During the Board meetings, the principal can seek the Board's advice on matters on school policy and on larger matters affecting the school's present life and its future.
