Board of Trustees
Committed to improving opportunites…
Mt Pleasant School is fortunate to have always had a strong, committed and skilled group of people willing to oversee and govern the direction and goals of the school.
The Principal is responsible for the day to day running of the school.
The Board is responsible for the governance of our school setting the strategic direction in consultation with staff, parents and students and meeting legal and statutory requirements.
The Board provides governance and stewardship on the management of personnel, property, finance and administration. This specifically includes the responsibility for implementing the Charter, setting and reviewing goals, implementing policies and assessing performance in relation to these.
The Principal (as Chief Executive of the school) is charged with the responsibility of achieving these objectives through effective day to day management of the school’s staff and resources. As a Board, we liaise closely with the Principal.

BoT Approved Minutes – 26th January 2015
In the newsletter following every meeting one Board Member will write a very short summary of what was covered at the meeting or about an aspect of the meeting that they think is of interest to the wider community. This will be published in the school newsletter. The purpose of this is to inform and enable connection and conversation with the wider school community.
