School Boards were established in the ACT to allow the maximum participation of teachers, parents and students, in cooperation with the Department of Education and Training, to develop the educational environment within individual schools.
The Board is composed of three elected parent representatives, two elected teacher representatives, the Principal (ex officio), one nominee of the Department of Education and Training, and two elected student representatives.
The Board is charged with the responsibility of overseeing the school budgets, considering submissions for curriculum change, helping prepare duty statements for Principal appointments and representing the school community in making submissions to the Department of Education and Training or other government or non-government groups.
The Melrose High School Board has played an important role in promoting the interests of the school and its students and looks to the continued assistance of parents, students and staff in its future work.
The School Board meets on the second Tuesday of the month from 5:15 - 7:15 pm
Friends of Melrose Parents and Citizens Interest group
No formal Parents & Citizens Committee has existed at Melrose since 2011. In 2013 an interest group known as The Friends of Melrose was formed and they continue to provide support for school events, provide representation on the School Board and provide feedback on operational matters. The group has a standing item at the end of the School Board meeting to formally raise any additional matters. A review of interest from parents and citizens each year will determine interest in reconvening a formal Parents & Citizens Committee.
