Parent groups and other opportunities to be involved

 

School Board

We are supported by the School Board, consisting of parents, staff and Parish representatives. The School Board has the important responsibility of assisting the Principal and staff in formulating and implementing school policies, supporting the school's strategic planning, maintenance, development and WHS compliance. It is also responsible for all aspects of the financial administration of the school.

Nomination for School Board members is held at the beginning of the year and no special qualifications are necessary, just a desire and commitment to be involved in the running of the school.

 

Parents and Friends Committee

All parents whose children attend St John Bosco School are members of the Parents and Friends Committee. The Parents and Friends fosters and promotes parental participation in the life of the school through social and fundraising events, both essential to the life and spirit of St John Bosco.

New members to the committee are always welcome and we appreciate your generosity and time. Please speak to the staff at the school office if you would like to know more.
