As an Independent Public School, Wattle Grove Primary School operates under a School Board consisting of parents, staff and community members. Board members are elected for a maximum of 3 years and community members are appointed. The School Board operates separately to the P&C which has representation within the Board itself.
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.
