Under the School Education Act 1999 government schools are required to have a Board, with parent/community members being in the majority.

The School Board is formed with the fundamental purpose of enabling parents and members of the community to engage in activities that are in the best interests of students and that will enhance the education provided by the school.

The functions of every School Board in a government school are to:

  • (a)To take part in:
    • (i) establishing and reviewing the school’s objectives, priorities and general policy directions;
    • (ii) financial planning to support the above;
    • (iii) evaluating the school’s performance in achieving these;
    • (iv) formulating codes of conduct for students.
  • (b) promote the school in thecommunity;
  • (c) provide advice on policy for religious education and implementation of special religious education;
  • (d) determine, in consultation,a dress code for students;
  • (e)approve:
