On Wednesday 21 February 2018 the school called for Indigenous community persons to nominate for membership of the school board. The closing date for nominations was Wednesday 28 February 2018.
This closing date was incorrect. According to the board’s terms of reference, the call for nominations should be open for 21 days.
In order to rectify this error, we have decided to defer the nomination process in the short term.
Nominations will now be sought after the board has reviewed its terms of reference for compliance with the legislation, and members have participated in training provided by the Department of Education. We expect these will both be completed by the end of Term 2, 2018.
After this, the board will call for nominations for vacant membership positions. We look forward to working with all parts of our community in the future. Further updates on the activities of the board will be provided in due course.
