Announcement : 


The Board of Trustees (BOT) are the staff’s employers and they govern our school. The role of the BOT is to ensure that the school is meeting its requirements – legally and ethically, ensuring the school creates a safe environment for our children and staff and the best possible education is provided. ​ The school’s Catholic mission is clear in the documentation and the BOT includes specific Catholic Character goals in all documentation. The charter, strategic plan, annual plan and progress towards these goals are monitored. A Special Character component is covered at each meeting. Meetings generally take place every fourth Thursday of the month in Room 2 at 6.00 pm and are advertised on our website, through the Community Calendar and in the weekly newsletter. ​​ Parents / Caregivers are welcome to attend these meetings.
