The School Board is the policy making body for the school. Responsibilities of the board include the development of policies, philosophy and goals, the disbursement of funds and the approval of curricula.
Board membership consists of three parents and citizen’s representatives (elected by the parents and citizens), one of whom will be chair, two staff members (elected by the staff), a nominee of the Department and the Principal as executive officer. Members are appointed for a two-year term.
Principal as executive officer. Members are appointed for a two-year term. Members of the school community may be invited to attend specific items of discussion at School Board meetings as observers. Meeting dates and times are advised in the Newsletter.
The School Board determines the amount for voluntary contributions each year. At Duffy contributions are made into a Library Trust Fund and are tax deductable. This is used to assist us to maintain a quality educational program. The present contributions are $100 per student and $80 per student thereafter. Contributions may be paid in full or by instalments.
Parents and Citizens Association
The P&C aims to:
- promote school interests
- encourage co-operation and community involvement
- is the major fundraising body in the school
- gain information from other organisations
- provide a forum for parents to discuss educational matters
- advise parent Board members of the view of the parent body on particular issues
General meetings are held monthly, as are Executive Meetings. The P&C is always ready to welcome new faces, fresh input and ideas. The P&C’s major fundraising efforts through the year are an annual fete and trivia night. The proceeds from the fete combined with other fundraising activities and the voluntary contributions provide substantial support in supplementing the school’s budget and allowing innovative programs to commence, continue, and expand.
