Our School Board

What is the Function of the Dale Christian School Board?

Dale Christian School is a ministry of the Armadale Congregational Church. By law, the existence of a Board of governors, is responsible for the oversight of the school, using public and government funds.  This Board, as it serves the school community, is answerable to the Armadale Congregational Church.

The School Board operates at a governance level which means its responsibility is to:

  • Ensure the strategic values, purpose and vision continue to be supportive of the primary function of the school.
  • This primary function is to offer affordable, quality education within the framework of a Christ-centred biblical world view as we strive to equip our students with skills and strong values that encourage them to pursue excellence in all areas.
  • Appointing the Principal and monitoring the school’s standard of education and care provided to all students.

It is important to understand the School Board does not involve itself with the management responsibilities of the school but rather sets its strategic direction. The day-to-day responsibilities of the school are devolved to the School Principal, his executive team, and staff.

Learning should be fun! The Program is designed to promote sound spiritual, physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of your child in the very important early years.

This is done through a comprehensive program that provides your child with ample opportunities to develop their natural abilities in all areas.
