Who is on the School Board?

What is the role of the School Board?
Essentially the Board governs the school whilst the Principal manages the day to day running of the school. The Board is responsible for setting the strategic direction of the school, overseeing the management of personnel, property and finance rather than administrative detail. Enhancing student achievement is its focus.
Where can I find a copy of the Board Minutes?
Copies of the meeting minutes are available at the school office.
