The Board of Trustees of the Southern Health School, by nature of the school's constantly changing community of students and parents, is somewhat different in composition. Members of our Board [with the exception of the Staff Trustee] are appointed, at triennial School Board election time, by the Minister of Education.

Board Members

  • Eddie Norgate – Chair
  • David Ivory
  • Craig Scott
  • Ben Nettleton
  • John Sandston

These five community representatives are joined by:

  • Jo Kennard – Staff Trustee, and
  • Helen Mantell – Principal.
