Expression of Interest – School Board

Do you know someone that would be a suitable addition to our school board or another school board in the ACT?

The Education Directorate is seeking expressions of interest from people to fill the position of “Appointed Member” on ACT public school boards. Expressions of interest will be used to fill vacant positions in schools across the ACT.

All ACT public schools have a school board. The school board is responsible for the school’s strategic direction, its budget, policy implementation and related issues. Generally, school boards consist of:

• the school’s principal;

• three parents and citizens members;

• two staff members;

• two student members (at high schools and colleges);

• one Appointed Member; and

• up to two Board Appointed Members (if any).

The appointed member is usually someone from outside the immediate school community, who is interested in and committed to public education. They bring an independent voice to board decisions. Appointments extend for periods up to two years and an appointed member may also be re-appointed after the conclusion of their term.

People interested in becoming an appointed member on a school board, should complete the expression of interest form and return it to the school boards team in the Education Directorate Email: EDUSchoolBoards@act.gov.au

Expressions of interest for this recruitment round will be open until COB Monday 20 June 2022 (week 9, term 2).

Reconnect ACT

Are you experiencing conflict with your parents/ and or teenager(s)?

Is it becoming increasingly difficult to keep the peace at home?

Reconnect ACT is an outreach program for young people aged 12-18 and their families in the ACT.

Our Youth and Family Workers can come to you and meet in a place where you feel most comfortable; be it your home, your community, your school or work. The program can provide support to both the young person and their parents/care-givers with different workers where appropriate. The program can help young people and their families work through a range of issues to achieve family reconciliation. The program can also help you find appropriate accommodation where reconciliation is not possible. Our Reconnect Youth Workers can also support young people to access employment, education, training and other community activities.

We currently have vacancies in our Reconnect program.

For more information or to make a referral to this service, email reconnect@catholiccare.cg.org.au or contact 6163 7600.
