Triennial Board elections are due to take place next year (probably 7 May, 2010). More information will be advertised and sent out to parents next year, but the Board of Trustees asks that parents consider taking on this important role.
Our communities need great boards to help build great schools.
Trustees are active leaders in our schools and we need more people willing to use their skills and experiences for the benefit of students.
Trustees have an important role supporting strong professional leadership and effective teaching for all students through informed governance.
Both parents and people from throughout the wider community can be school trustees. It is important that boards represent the diversity of their school communities to ensure a bright future for our children. The elections also give parents of children at state and state integrated schools the opportunity to vote for candidates who will make a difference for their schools. It is an important responsibility and all eligible parents should use their vote in an informed way.
