School Board

The Singleton Primary School Board works with the school community to achieve the best outcomes for students. It plays an important role in contributing to good school governance so that school resources are used efficiently, and community expectations and the school’s priorities reflect the needs of students.

The functions of the Board are covered by legislation and include both approval and advisory roles. Some of the matters Boards may make decisions on include:

  • fees and charges
  • book lists
  • sponsorship
  • dress codes. 

The Board makes these decisions with the Principal and other relevant decision makers who ensure the decisions adhere to legislative and policy requirements.

Principals may also seek the advice of the Board to inform them before making management decisions. Board members have the right to understand the Principal’s decisions (except where they involve confidential information and decisions about people or families).

The Board does not intervene in the control or management of the school. This is the role of the Principal.

School Board Members:

  • Darlene Gostelow – Principal
  • Hayley Vasiliauskas – Board Chair 
  • Kirsty Williams 
  • Andrew Clouting 
  • Tammy Loffler


Board Meetings are held each Term.
