As an Independent Public School, Helena Valley Primary School operates under a School Board consisting of parents, staff and community members. The School Board is a working Board, working in partnership with school staff to develop the Business Plan, and then monitors the schools progress to achieve this. The School Board operates separately to the P&C.
The role of the School Board is one of setting the long term future for the school and in providing additional expertise to help the school achieve the best outcome for all of the students. The School Board meets a minimum of once a term, with additional meetings called if and when required.
