Governance & Policies

Legal Structure of the School
The Beehive Montessori School Inc. is an Incorporated Association (not for gain) under the Associations Incorporation Act 2015 (WA). The School’s rules are contained in the Beehive Constitution adopted in 1985 and amended in 2000, 2015 and 2018.

The School Board

Pathway to join the Beehive Board

The Beehive School Board is made up of past and current Beehive parents with a mix of different skill sets in order to provide a wide range of expertise in the governance of the School.

From time to time parents may be approached by the Board to see if they are interested in joining because they have a skill set or expertise which may be particularly useful, however this is by no means the only way to join.

If you have interest in giving your time and expertise to the Board you are welcome to email the Board Secretary at any time at board@beehive.wa.edu.au to express your interest and provide some details of your background. It is also possible to observe at a Board meeting in order to get a sense of the Board’s responsibility for, and contribution to, strategic policy and how you may be able to assist.

The Beehive Montessori Foundation
The Foundation plays an integral role in the financial security of the school. All major fundraising activities of the parent body are conducted within the framework of the Foundation, which enables it to acquire some capital items for use by the school.
