The Governing Board is a structure that creates a partnership of parents
and staff in the management of the school. The Governing Board is not
involved in the day-to-day running of the school but works with the principal
in setting and implementing policy directions for programmes and services
that will meet the needs of the students and the community. It has the
responsibility to ensure that every decision it makes is in the best interest
of all students.
In September of every year, all parents of students who attend the school
are invited to a general assembly to elect their representatives to the
Governing Board. The Mackay Centre School Governing Board is composed
of the Principal, four parents, four teachers and a community representative.
