An Independent Public School

School Board ~ Community Representative Vacancy 2018-2020

Call for Expressions of Interest

North Perth Primary School is an Independent Public School. This means the school has greater autonomy and can make decisions about matters such as staff recruitment, financial management and governance in order to enhance student learning.

The School Board of an Independent Public School plays an important role in establishing the school’s strategic direction and monitoring its progress towards agreed performance targets, set out in the Business Plan. The Board is governed by its Terms of Reference and members abide by the Code of Conduct.

We are an active and involved School Board and meet a minimum of twice per school term. Meetings take place at the school on Mondays from 5:00-6:30pm. Working Parties are formed as needed.

We are seeking a new Community Representative to complement our current Board members’ skills in education, finance, and management. Desirable skills include, but are not limited to, communications, public relations, marketing, and community relations.

If you would like to be considered for this role, please email an expression of interest to the Chair, Kati Tonkin, including the following information:

  • your reasons for nominating;
  • your links to the North Perth community;
  • relevant professional and/or committee experience.

Your expression of interest should be submitted to by Friday 2 March 2018.

The Board will consider nominations at a meeting on Monday 12 March 2018. The Chair will advise nominees of the outcome by Friday 16 March 2018.
