The School Board, in representing the Catholic school community, actively promotes and supports the Catholic ethos of the School.
The general objective for which the St Augustine Primary School Board is constituted, is to help St Augustine Primary School fulfill its educational responsibilities in accordance with the Mandate for Catholic Schools, Living the Vision and the Catholic School Board Constitution, in accordance with the policies and practices prescribed or recommended by the CECWA, and in accordance with Diocesan guidelines and prescriptions for the Religious Education program.
The Board is responsible not only to the St Augustine Primary School community, but also to the CECWA for the financial administration of the School. It is also entrusted with the duty of planning, on behalf of the School community, with the school staff (through the Principal) and with the CECWA to meet the present and future needs of students.
The Board usually meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm. The Annual General Meeting is held in November of each year. A report by the Board Chairperson is given; the Treasurer presents the provisional budget and new Board members are elected.
Board members are elected for a two-year period, with a maximum of 3 terms.
Taking on a position with the School Board is a wonderful way for parents to be involved and help nurture St Augustine Primary School. In addition to the normal Executive roles, the St Augustine School Board also appoints a range of sub-committees, as deemed necessary, providing parents an opportunity to leverage their business acumen or other specialisations.
If you think you can benefit the school by being part of the St Augustine Primary School Board, please contact the Principal for further discussion.
