Developing school and class rules is a collaborative effort and they are designed for safety and security of the whole community. These are regularly discussed during class meetings, SRC meetings and assemblies and should be clear to all students. The school has a clear behaviour management policy which all staff implement consistently. The behaviour management policy is located in the policy section of this website.
The School Board is elected each year and meets on Thursday of week 3 and week 8 each term between 6.00 pm and 7.00 pm in the staff room. The School Board embodies the principle of collaboration between parents and staff, and community partnership in decision-making processes. Its members include three parents (one being the Chairperson), two teachers, a community representative and the Principal. Staggered two-year terms ensure continuity in the Board's work. The Maribyrnong Primary School Board encourages communication between the school and its community in determining the school's budget, curriculum and education policies as well as its many needs in relation to buildings, facilities, equipment, funds and staff. The minutes of the School Board meetings are available from the front office.
