St Paul’s Anglican Grammar School Board

The Board is accountable to the Members of the Company, students, parents, staff and the whole school community for the conduct, performance and culture of St Paul’s.  The Board will steer the organisation through:

  • A strategic role – of setting the overall operational direction of St Paul’s; and
  • A stewardship role – of ensuring that St Paul’s Anglican Grammar School has arrangements in place to meet its obligations as an Independent School and that its activities reflect St Paul’s Anglican Grammar School’s values.

Roles and Duties of the Board

It is the role of the School Board to provide strategic guidance for the School and to effectively oversee and review the School’s management.  Governance practices require the School to formalise and disclose the roles and responsibilities of the School Board and its Members.

Please note, however, that all matters to do with the day-to-day operation of the School or management issues should be referred to the relevant senior staff member or ultimately to the Principal, Lisa Moloney, who can be contacted on – phone 5623 5833 or email principal@stpaulsags.vic.edu.au . The Board does not involve itself in specific management issues (such as discipline, the details of curriculum, staff concerns, or the payment of fees).
