School Board


As an independent public school, Edgewater Primary School has a school board consisting of parent, staff and community members. The role of the board is essentially that of involvement in the governance of the school. This means taking part in the shaping and monitoring of the school's vision, objectives, priorities and general policy directions.

The board does not have a role in school management. This is the responsibility of the principal and involves educational leadership and the day-to-day administration, supervision and control of the school and its staff.

The 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 will enhance the education provided by the school.

The role of the school board is outlined in the School Education Act 1999. In essence, the role of a school board is one of setting the long term future goals 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 outcomes for its students.
