Board of Trustees


The Board of Trustees is responsible for governing the school and setting its direction, including curriculum, staff, property, health and safety, finance and administration. The board makes decisions that the principal and teachers then put in place.

The board has a charter, which sets out long-term goals and annual targets for the school. The board also monitors and reports annually on its progress towards those goals.

Board meetings are usually open to the public, but if the board is considering confidential matters, its meeting or a part of it, will be closed.

Standing for the board of trustees is a great way to get involved in your child’s education. Trustees receive training and support to help them carry out their responsibilities. Board of Trustees members are elected by parents and staff members.

Our next election will be in April/May 2019. Three of our current Board members will complete their term at this time, and their positions will come up for election.
