The Board and Funding Committee have conducted a program of regional meeting and school visits since 2002.
The regional visit program is designed primarily to facilitate familiarisation visits to as many non-State schools in a geographical location as possible.
Members attend schools in small groups using the visit as an opportunity to gain an insight into the issues schools are currently addressing. The visits are therefore intended for familiarisation purposes only and are not part of the formal accreditation and assessment of Government funding eligibility work undertaken by these two bodies.
The regular scheduled meetings of both the Board and the Funding Committee are incorporated into this regional program.
In some locations, the mayor of the local city council will host a welcome function for members of the Board and Funding Committee, and for the principals and chairpersons of the governing bodies of local non-State schools, as well as local councillors. Such council-sponsored events are valuable opportunities for members to meet with school principals and representatives of school governing bodies as a whole, as well as to understand local needs.
