Treendale Primary School Board

As an Independent Public School, Treendale Primary School Board is required to have a School Board which is comprised of parents, staff and community representatives.

The Board is made up of 6 elected parent representatives, 4 staff, 2 co-opted community members and the Principal. Suchitra Jones is the Acting Chair of the Board.

The Principal is responsible for the educational leadership, operation and management of the school. To maximise the input of the School Board in developing school policies, the Principal seeks advice and will receive recommendations from the School Board and the Principal reports regularly to the Board on the school’s progress.

The School Board meets twice a term to support the Principal in the governance of the school. Policies are reviewed and endorsed, financial matters discussed as well as school performance data reviewed.

Suchitra Jones
Acting School Board Chair

I am a mother of two young boys who has been living & working in the South-West as a process engineer since 2007. I have a strong interest in seeing Treendale Primary School strive for excellence in all its endeavours, to deliver the best possible outcomes for its students, their families, and the local community.

I see my role as a parent representative member in achieving these goals by providing consistent & thoughtful input into all aspects to which the Board has governance, and being available as a voice for all school community members to be heard by the Board.
