Balga SHS is advantaged by a School Board representing extensive experience and commitment from a diverse range of Industry, Government, Business and Community sectors.
The fundamental purpose of the School Board is 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 functions of the School Board are covered by legislation and include both approval and advisory roles. Some of the matters the Board may make decisions on include fees and charges, book lists, sponsorship and dress codes. The Board makes these decisions with the principal who ensures the decisions adhere to legislative and policy requirements. Principals also seek the advice of the School Board so as to understand local community views.
The Board does not intervene in the control or management of the school. This is the role of the principal.
