Our Committee

Our Kindergarten is run by a Committee of Management, this committee comprises volunteer parents and teachers.

The members volunteer at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) – it’s a great chance to get involved, get to know other parents and families, give back to your community and make an important difference to your children’s worlds.
