Treendale PS School Board

As an Independent Public School, Treendale Primary School Board is required to have a School Board which is comprised of parents, staff and community representatives.

The inaugural Treendale Primary School Board was formed in 2014 after a process to elect parent and staff representatives. Community representatives are still be to nominated and elected.

The Board is made up of 8 elected parent representatives, 3 staff, 1 co-opted community member and the Principal. Dayle Hamilton is the Chair of the Board.

The Principal is responsible for the educational leadership, operation and management of the school. To maximise the input of the School Board in developing school policies, the Principal seeks advice and will receive recommendations from the School Board and the Principal reports regularly to the Board on the school’s progress.

The School Board meets twice a term to support the Principal in the governance of the school. Policies are reviewed and endorsed, financial matters discussed as well as school performance data reviewed.

In particular, the School Board assists the Principal in:

*creating a Delivery and Performance Agreement which sets out the expectations of the School and will be signed by the Director General of Education

*creating a Business Plan

*determining the school’s budget, key performance indicators and measurements for success of the school’s performance

*developing processes to review the satisfaction level of parents, staff and students and report the results in the Annual Report

*creating the school’s Annual Report
