SCHOOL BOARD


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 - 3 August 2017 

The MLPS Board met on 3rd August and reviewed the mid-year progress of the Board against its 2017 targets, received an update from the Principal on the start of Term 3 and plans for the second semester, and on the work going into the development of the School’s Business Plan. The board discussed the options for the provision of LOTE in 2018 prior to wider community consultation, and reviewed a draft proposal for early close one day per week from 2018 to allow for greater levels of staff professional development and training, again subject to community consultation and approval of the Education Department. An update on the ongoing work by the Before and After School Sub Committee was received, along with updates on Finance and the activities of the P&C Committee. The Board meets again on Thursday 24th August at 7pm in the MLPS Staffroom.
