The Statute provides for the Board to be composed of ten parent members and requires that “every consideration shall be made to ensure as far as possible a School Board that has financial, managerial, educational and legal expertise.”
As can be seen the School Board performs a very important role in San Andrea. All its members are volunteer parents who dedicate their time and offer their expertise and experience to the benefit of the School.
The current School Board is made up of the following parents:
a. Chairman: Dr Stephen Attard,
b. Members: David Xuereb, Edgar Caruana Montaldo, Jesmond Micallef, Ian Pellicano
The Board is also supported by ad-hoc specialist committees that are formed in part by Board members and in part by other parents that are appointed from time to time to tackle specific issues such as ICT and Marketing.
