PINELANDS NORTH PRIMARY SCHOOL

Grades 1 - 7

Governing Body

Our school governors commit themselves to hard work every three years. Because of good financial management we are able to plan for the future and take care of our staff and facilities.

Democracy at work

The Governing Body is a democratically elected body in which the majority of members are parents. The other members are elected by the teachers and other staff members of the school. Elections take place every three years or when there is a vacancy. The Governing Body in turn elects a Chairperson, a Treasurer and a Secretary. All governing body members are elected to promote the best interests of our school.

Policy making

The Governing Body is responsible for governance and policy making. As in all public schools, the precise functions, duties and powers of the Governing Body are determined by legislation. A number of Governing Body Committees perform important tasks such as the preparation of the school’s annual budget, the appointment of staff members and the marketing of the school.

If you require any further information or want to bring a matter to the attention of the Governing Body, you can contact the PNPS business manager or send an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
