Fremantle Primary School’s Board was formed in 2015 when the school became an Independent Public School. The School Board meets one or two times per term, usually in the evening, in the school library.
Fremantle Primary School is lucky to have such a committed and diverse Board. Members have a wide range of professional backgrounds and experiences which are highly beneficial to the school. The Board comprises eight parent representatives (elected via the parent community) and five staff members (elected via staff and include the Principal and Deputy Principal). Members have different tenures ranging from one to three years, to enable continuity.
Fremantle Primary School has enjoyed a successful partnership with Notre Dame University over the last few years, especially with ICT implementation its Junior Primary classrooms. This relationship has been strengthened by co-opting a representative from the University onto the School Board to provide valuable guidance and input. The school will also be investigating other co-opting opportunities.
The Board played a crucial role in setting the new strategic direction of the school. In autumn 2015, it comprehensively revised the school’s vision, mission statements, values and strategic priority areas, thus developing its aspirations for the next few years.
The Board now provides ongoing scrutiny and accountability, especially for activities and outcomes in each of the four strategic priority areas. This overseeing ensures that the school is continually striving for excellence, and that this enables each and every student to achieve their personal best both educationally and socially.
