Message From The Principal, 11 May 2018

Dear parents and guardians

Our school council, chaired by Michael Lok, plays an integral part in the governance of Island School. Their main functions include:-

  • working with the principal to establish the strategic direction for the school;
  • approving curriculum for the school that aligns with the curriculum strategy approved by the ESF Board for the schools of the Foundation as a whole;
  • approving the allocation of the school’s annual budget.
  • participating in the recruitment process for senior appointments;
  • monitoring the implementation of arrangements for staff reflection and development
  • scrutinising the school’s performance.

The school council recently held a weekend retreat which focused on the strategic challenges of Island School and included an address from M/s Belinda Greer, CEO of ESF. Belinda shared a candid view of the future opportunities for both ESF and Island School which led to a rich discussion.

Warm Regards
Island School Principal, Stephen Loggie
