As a result of several parent representative vacancies, the school now seeks nominations from interested parties to become members of the Mount Lawley Primary School Board.
Nominations are sought to fill three vacant positions on the School Board. An election will be held to fill these vacancies if more than three nominations are received.
Nominations in the form of a short profile (100 words or less) outlining the skills that you will bring to the Board are to be submitted on the nomination form available on the school’s website and should be sent to ManagerCorporateServices.MountLawley.PS@education.wa.edu.au.
Alternatively, nomination forms can be dropped in the School Board drop box in the school’s front office. Nominations will close at 16:00 on Friday 24 November 2017.
The following links provide more information about the role of a School Board and the skills that we are seeking:
The board has an important influence on the direction of the school, with members bringing ideas and lending their expertise to strategic planning and community partnerships. Professional skills in areas such as management, finance, education, procurement, marketing and cultural knowledge support the principal and strengthen the school’s capacity to meet the needs of its students.
If you believe you have the requisite skills to contribute to the development of the school, we would encourage you to put forward your nomination.
Welcome to the MLPS Board Page.
Mount Lawley Primary School becomes an Independent Public School in 2017. An important part of this transition is the formation of a School Board. Background information on Independent Public Schools and their Boards can be found below. Members of the school community are welcome to attend Board meetings as observers.
The School Board, comprising of staff, community and parent representatives, meets on a regular basis. The School Board has a number of functions including participation in establishing and reviewing from time to time, the school’s objectives, priorities and general policy directions, evaluating the school’s performance in achieving the objectives set and to promote the school in the community. The Board also takes part in formulating the codes of conduct for students and may take part in selecting key staff members.
The Board approves school fees and charges and any agreements for advertising or sponsorship for the school. The Board determines the dress code for students and provides advice to the Principal on spiritual and values based education.
Board members are drawn from parents, the community, staff and the Principal.

SUMMARY OF LAST MEETING - 26 October 2017
The Board meeting on 26th October was well attended by members of the MLPS community to hear a presentation on the school’s 2017 NAPLAN Results. Mrs Monck reviewed the positive results, and then walked the audience through the range of actions underway at both a classroom and leadership level to put in place strategies to target improvements in the areas identified. The Board also spent time discussing some proposed timetable amendments, the school’s decision on languages from 2018, proposed changes to the School Uniform Policy and the Board’s own Succession Plan and upcoming vacant Board positions. The work of the Out of Hours Care sub-committee was reviewed, and the Principal gave an update on the busy first few weeks of Term 4. The last Board meeting for 2017 will be held in the Staff Room at 7pm on 23 November.
