The ongoing growth and success of Korowal School is built on a foundation of responsible and accountable governance. The governing body of the School is the Korowal School Board (KSB). Korowal School is a not-for-profit company incorporated in NSW. We encourage parents and carers to become voting members of the Company when they enrol their child.

2022 AGM

The daily running of the school is in the hands of the School Principal and the Executive. The Principal is the School’s Chief Executive Officer and reports to the Board. Our current Principal is Cindy Barnsley. 

The Executive consists of the Principal (Cindy Barnsley), the Deputy Principal (Matthew Whaley) and the Business Manager (Melanie Williams).

The Directors of the School Board are elected every two years and are currently composed of elected members, being five parents and three educators. This arrangement allows for the consensual and efficient operation of the School, both administratively and educationally, and also encourages a constructive partnership between parents/carers and teachers. We strive for consensus in all decisions.

Parents and teachers are encouraged to take an active interest in school governance through voting or nominating for election to the School Board. There is an Annual General Meeting in May each year.
