School boards are comprised of up to six parent representatives, elected for a two year term at the annual general meeting (AGM), a P& F representative elected annually, a parish representative, the School Principal and the Parish Priest.
The school board meets twice each term throughout the school year. The school board communicates its’ activities to the school community at the AGM in November each year as well as through input from the Principal through newsletters and other avenues as required.
The role of the school board is to help the school fulfil its educational responsibilities in accordance with the constitution, policies, guidelines and practices of the Catholic Education Council of Western Australia (CECWA) and diocesan guidelines. Essentially, this role relates to financial stewardship and, to a lesser extent, policy decisions.
A school board is required in each Catholic school as set out in the Mandate Letter issued by the Conference of Bishops. The work of the school board takes place within the context of the mission of the Catholic Church educating its young people in the Catholic faith and preparing them for full participation within society.
In 2010, some of the activities of the Board will include:
- Planning and involvement in the construction process of the multipurpose hall with the BER (Building the Education Revolution) money
- Participation in the appointment of new staff during the year
- Grounds upkeep and maintenance
- Budget planning and implementation
The board members strive to support the staff of St Brigid’s in the work that they do, both recognising and commending the excellent professional and pastoral reputation of our school teaching team. The School Board asks that you continue to pray for and support the Principal, teachers and support staff who all work to make St Brigid's such a positive learning environment for our children.
The manual for school boards states "Board members should model their actions on the example of Jesus who came to serve, not to be served". With exciting projects within the mandate of the school board this year there are many challenging but rewarding times ahead.
