Our School Board is a vibrant organisation consisting of members of education, business, community groups and parents of GSHS students, who help to establish and review the school's objectives, priorities and general policy direction.

The Board aims to achieve the best outcomes and the highest quality of education for the students of the school, and is also an important link between the school and members of the government, the Department of Education and community groups.
