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
The School’s governing body is the School Board, and Board members are responsible for the strategic policy and executive decisions affecting the Association and the School. The School’s Strategic Plan Document is reviewed and updated annually by the Board and key staff.
The Board delegates the management of the School to the Principal, who is responsible for education and staffing and the day to day management of the School. If you wish to contact any of our School Board Members, please email email@example.com for your email to be forwarded accordingly.
BETTINA MANGAN Chair 2015-2020
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Bettina Mangan for her amazing contributions to the Beehive Montessori School. Bettina joined the school community in 1996 as a parent, and all three of her children attended Beehive, with her youngest daughter Libby joining the adolescent program and graduating in our very first Year 9 cohort. Bettina has been actively involved with the governance of the school through her work on the board for a decade, and has held the role of chair for the last five years. The stability, continuity and solid practices of our school board remains as a testament to her dedication and hard work in this role. We look forward to continuing to welcome Bettina back in future celebrations as a life-long member of our Beehive community.
The current Board members are:

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
