School Board

The School Board has a wide range of responsibilities that affect the service provided by the school. Its primary repsponsibility is to set the direction for the school by ratifying the school priorities. It is also involved in monitoring the school plans prepared to address the identified priorities and in ensuring that adequate resources (both human and financial) are alloted to priority areas. The group provides an opportunity for the school staff and the parents to work together in the development of our school.

The School Board is also utilised to formalise policies constructed within the school community. By including all parties in the decision making process, broad consensus can be achieved and policies put in place that best meet the needs of Tom Price Primary School students. Examples of policy decision ratified by the Tom Price Primary School Board include;

  • Homework
  • Behaviour Management
  • Schedule of Charges and Contributions
  • School Uniform

Parents and member of the wider communityare welcome to contact any member of the School Board to discuss any matters of concern or interest. Interested persons are also welcome to attend meetings as observers.
