Our School Board

The School Board is the governance body responsible for representing the strategic direction of Geraldton Senior High School. Our board is made up of 15 members: parents (5), community members (5), and staff (5). At least one community member is of Aboriginal descent.

With the best outcome for students in mind, the board meets monthly to consider the vision and direction of the school, with members bringing ideas and lending their expertise to many topics including strategic planning and community partnerships. The School Board also oversees the Business Plan, and monitors the budget for actions that support our four priorities of:

  • Success for all Students
  • Quality Teaching and Leadership
  • Wellbeing
  • Community Partnerships

The School Board meets twice a term (weeks 5 and 9) on a Tuesday from 5.30pm – 7:00pm. The Annual General Meeting is held in May each year.
