Board

The Board of Trustees works in partnership with the Principal to support and lead the school, provide our students with the very best opportunities to maximise their learning potential and prepare them for the future.

The Board is responsible for the governance of the school, setting the schools strategic direction, recognising and enhancing the Special Catholic Character, compliance, allocating decision-making responsibilities and giving focus to student progress and achievement.
