We are an Independent Public School (IPS)
As such, the Bunbury Senior High School's board (the board) meets twice a term to guide the strategic direction of the school in line with the school's
Delivery and Performance Agreement and Business Plan.
The Performance and Delivery Agreement describes in broad terms what the school is expected to provide to its students, staff and the community in exchange for the funding provided
by the state government.
Consequently this new business plan continues a big picture perspective, allowing the school's leaders to develop operational level plans and to implement them over the course of each year
The board is guided by Western Australia's School Education Act 1999 and regulations, specifically those relating to school councils.
The Bunbury Senior High School board draws its membership from parents, the local community, Year 11 students, staff and the Principal.
The board meets on Tuesday evenings (5-7 pm) in Weeks 4 and 8 in the meeting room next to Student Services. Meetings are generally open for others to attend and observe, unless confidential or sensitive matters are being discussed. Each year in Week 8 of Term 1 the board holds a public meeting that includes election of new members and the Board Chair.
