Our governance framework is comprehensive and current and sets the foundation for our decision-making, as well as ensuring a bright future for our school.
The International School of Western Australia is operated by the Australian Association for International Education Incorporated, a not-for-profit association incorporated in the State of Western Australia.
All parents or guardians of students enrolled at the school are members of the Association. The governing body, the ‘Board of the Association’, is comprised of up to 13 representatives of the Perth community who support our vision to inspire and challenge our students to learn, achieve, and make a difference in the world. The Board’s function is to ensure that the school fulfills this defined purpose and that it continues to do so in a sustainable manner, well into the future.

- Setting the strategic direction of the school while upholding its core values, in partnership with the Principal.
