School Board update

On Thursday, 14 May the Millen School Board met for our second meeting of the year. A little different to usual being online!

The following are the main points discussed:

  • Higgins Park Master Planning. Paul Kellick is Millen’s nominated representative involved he and gave us an update on options being considered and potential impact on Millen.
  • The Board approved the School’s year to date Finance Report, and noted the Funding Agreement between the Department of Education and the School. The Funding Agreement outlines the accountability expectations of the principal in relation to the management of funding to the school.
  • The impact of COVID-19 and the strategies in place at Millen to manage the disruption. The Board acknowledged the significant work undertaken and thanked all Millen staff for their dedication and commitment to supporting each other, and our children.
  • Board vacancies for Parent members will be advised in the next few weeks.
