The primary function of the board is to provide advice and voice opinion on any given topic as to allow the Parish Priest and School Principal to make a well informed decision about the future of St Mary’s School.
The board's key areas of responsibility encompass advising on:
Provision and maintenance of school buildings
With the advent of a School Board we have commenced to formulate policies which reflect our Gospel values, through the collective wisdom of the faith community.
All parents are encouraged to understand the philosophy behind our board. It becomes the Principal’s responsibility to in-service the Board on their role each year and to in-service parents about the role of the Board at Parents & Friends Meetings.
The School Board does not duplicate the functions, but works in consultation with the Parents and Friends Association and the Parish Community.
