As an independent school we have a school board.

As a result of the significant school development process undertaken since 2007,  Eastern Hills was, in  2014, accepted as an Independent Public School. This has presented the school with the opportunity to continue pursuit of the school vision of excellence and opportunity  through a progressive education in new context. The school board brings together key representatives – parents, staff, community – who have a shared vision about the vital importance of education for the future of our students.  Importantly, the Board shares a keen interest in  guiding the School’s strategic directions and providing strong governance which supports teachers and  students.
