During the meeting early in the term we reviewed and discussed several documents. The documents included:

In addition, Manager of Corporate Services, Lindie Alberts presented the Board with the latest Finance Report and The Fremantle LDC Draft Budget for 2020.

Viv Doig presented her Principal’s report to keep the Board up to date with relevant key financial and operational information.

In addition, the Board discussed the 2019 Parent Survey results and the 2019 Staff Survey results, which were overall very positive.

Upcoming Board Activities

The next board meeting will be held on Thursday 12th of December.

During this meeting we will be reviewing Board member’s intentions for 2020. We will then hold a nomination process in 2020 to fill any vacant positions.

On behalf of the Board, I would like to congratulate Viv Doig on her recent permanent appointment as Principal of Fremantle LDC from 2020. The Board looks forward to continuing to work with Viv to support the Fremantle LDC to ensure the best outcomes for all our students.

On behalf of the Board, I would also like to wish all students, staff and their families a safe and relaxing Christmas and New Year.
