2018 School Board

2018 Bannister Creek Primary School Board – Parent Reps needed!
Together we can make a difference in our children’s education!
Our School Board consists of:
4 Parent Representatives – elected by school parent community
1 P&C Representative – elected by the P&C
5 Staff Representatives, including the Principal – elected by Staff
Community Representatives – appointed by the Board
The School Board has an important governance role in our school. This means taking part in the shaping and monitoring of the school’s objectives, priorities and general policy direction. The Board is formed with the fundamental purpose of enabling parents and members of the community to engage in activities that are in the best interests of students and will enhance the education provided by the school. It is about providing additional expertise to help the school achieve the best outcomes for the students.
Members have a term of 3 years. We currently have vacancies for 2 Parent Representatives and I am calling for nominations from interested parents and carers to be part of this decision making group. To nominate, please complete the attached nomination form. Written nominations must be received in the School Office by Wednesday 22nd November 2017, 3:30pm. Our first Board meeting is scheduled for Monday 19th February 2018 at 3:15pm in the school staff-room.
I would encourage all parents and carers to consider being a member of this group and contributing to the leadership of our school. For more information on school boards go to: http://det.wa.edu.au/schoolcouncils/detcms/portal/
