Gan Gani is a Community Kindergarten run by its own volunteer management committee, elected from the parent body and other interested members of the local community. Such a management structure enables parents to play a key role in their child’s Kindergarten experience.
At Gan Gani, the parent committee is called the Queensland Jewish Kindergarten Association Inc (QJKA). The QJKA stands as the Approved Provider, holds the legal accountability of the Kindergarten and is responsible for the general management of the Centre to Gowrie standards and the Department of Communities.
Role of the Committee
The committee work together throughout the year to enhance the children’s experience, govern the strategic direction, and participate in general decision-making processes in relation to the Kindergarten.
Being part of the Committee is a very rewarding and worthwhile experience for all parents! Whether you are a new or returning parent, all parents are welcome and greatly encouraged to come on board, regardless of your specific skillset or experience. It is a great opportunity to join in the fun and become an active member of this fantastic, engaged and dedicated community!
The Management Committee plays a vital role in our organisation by undertaking:
- Strategic and business planning
- Risk management
- Financial management and reporting
- Human resource planning and control
- Compliance and accountability systems
– Vice President
Non Executive Roles (some can be shared, one person taking the lead)
Annual General Meeting
The Management Committee is elected every year at an Annual General Meeting held in February by the members of the Association.
Nominations for the Management Committee positions are sought in the weeks between the commencement of the year and the date of the Annual General Meeting, in accordance with the Constitution.
