School Board

As in all ACT Government schools, Fraser Primary is governed by a School Board.  The School Board comprises three elected parent & carer representatives, two staff members, a community member, and the School Principal.

The School Board assists in the development of school policy, the school curriculum, and provides governance pertaining to the strategic direction of the school. It also oversees the allocation of funds, assesses financial risk, and approves and monitors the school budget.

The School Board helps to foster productive relationships between the parents & carers and the school, and provides a formal mechanism for parents and carers, staff, and students to have their views taken into account when decisions are made. The School Board is constituted under the ACT Schools Authority Ordinance, which gives legal functions and power to the School Board. The School Board meets regularly throughout the year.

We welcome, at any time, enquiries from the parents & carers, staff and members of the local community, and we encourage the participation of parents and carers in their children's learning.

The current School Board Chair is Chris Flinders, the Deputy Chair is Melina Pipe and Chiara McNabb completes our parent representative group.

Are you interested in becoming a member of the School Board?

School Board members require no previous experience. All that is required is an interest in the educational governance of the school, and the well-being of the children, parents & carers, and staff of the Fraser Primary School community.  School Board members are nominated for a two year term. At least one parent/carer position is declared vacant each year, and a call for nominations is advertised during February each year.
