School Board

 About our School Board

The School Board is a legally formed body that, in partnership with our staff, is given powers to set and monitor the key directions of our school. It is the major governing body of the school and oversees the school’s performance.  In essence, the role of school board is one of setting the long term future for the school and maintaining oversight (not management) of the school’s operation. It is not about running the school – that is the job of the principal. It is about providing additional expertise to help the school achieve the best outcomes for the students.

Duncraig Primary School Board meets twice each term.

The Board consists of the Principal, representatives from the staff and elected parents and community representatives. The current make up is: three staff (including the Principal) and five parent/community members.
