Governance, Accountability & Community Voice

Our school board consists of elected parents, community members, and staff representatives. With in a highly trusting environment the board offers a forum in which we can share and reflect on the progress and improvement of the school. In addition the board provides a voice for the community that informs strategic and future thinking.

Clare Menck
Board Chairperson

Profile

I have been at Carlisle Primary School since 2015, serving on the Board since 2016. I am passionate about public education. I want to support our hard-working staff, and see Board membership as where I can contribute to the life of the school. In 2018, I have children in year three and pre-primary. When not at school I balance a number of volunteer and paid roles, of which the most substantial is running my own business as a consultant historian.

Our school board continues to go from strength to strength and as the Principal at Carlisle since 2017 I have had the privilege of working with great members of both our staff and community. The board plays a significant role in governance, school self-assessment, and provides an invaluable connection to the community. We are fortunate to have a group who have a strong view to developing our school both now and for the future. I value the board’s ability to catalyse these inspiring lines of inquiry and look forward to working alongside them again this year.
