Our Lady of the Rosary School has a fully constituted School Board. It is a pastoral Board and operates within the framework of the constitution for Boards in Brisbane Catholic Education, approved and recommended by the Bishops of Queensland.
The Board has an advisory role to our school. The Board functions within the general goals for the parish and the school mission statement.
