School Governing Body

The School Governing Body (SGB) is a statutory body of parents, educators, non-teaching staff who seek to work together to promote the well-being and effectiveness of the school community and thereby enhance learning and teaching.

The SGB has a fiduciary (trust) relationship towards the school. The SGB’s role is to support the school administratively so that the educators may concentrate on their teaching.

The SGB essentially:
assists the school with matters of administration, finance, discipline of the learners, etc and
develops school polices aligned with the legal requirements of provincial and national policies.

Its work can be divided into six key functions:
1. Steering
2. Monitoring
3. Support
4. Executive
5. Accountability
6. Discipline
