The management, control and executive power of the school rests with the School Governing Body. The Body is appointed in terms of the South African Act, Act 84 of 1996 and the regulations in term thereof. The School Governing Body consists of the following members: the school’s Principal, six parents elected from the parent body, two elected educators and one non-teaching staff/ administrative member. School Governing Body members are elected over a three year period.
This Body controls all aspects of the school, with the exception of specific professional educational aspects. The good governance of the school depends on the commitment and expertise of the parent members. The duties of the members of the School Governing Body are as follows:
- To promote the best interests of the school and ensure its development
- To adopt the Constitution and Mission Statement of the school.
- To decide on a school policy
- To adopt a code of conduct for the school
- To assist the principal, educators and other members of staff in the performance of their duties.
- To administer and control the school property, buildings and grounds
- To make recommendations on the appointment of educators and non-educators
- To determine the school fees through the resolution passed by parents
- To serve on sub-committees, eg Financial, Sport, Academic etc.
As the school is a Section 21 school, it has total responsibility for its finances, with exception of salaries for certain educators. In order to fund the expenditure, school fees are compulsory. The amount and date for payment are determined by the School Governing Body and are revised from time to time. Parents experiencing any difficulty in this regard must, without delay, contact the school in writing.
We request that where possible fees are paid directly into the school’s bank account. Banking details available from the bursar’s office.
