Rosebud Primary School will be governed by a School Management Committee (SMC) whose ultimate responsibility is to uphold the mission of the school by providing for the well being of the institution in the present as well as the future. The Board protects the public interest and upholds the public trust by applying the highest standards of service in governing the school according to its by-laws, and relevant government statutes. It is the duty of the SMC to make plans, establish policies, and assess the performance of the school as a whole. The Board also bears ultimate responsibility for the school’s finances and facilities. The Board must also identify, select, work with, support and evaluate the RBPS Principal, who is the professional educational leader of the school as well as its administrator. In order to successfully undertake all these responsibilities, the Board will organize, manage, and assess itself in an efficient, business-like manner.
