Governance Documents and Policies
In 2016, the Rockingham Montessori School community held strategic planning workshops at the Karnup campus, and developed five strategic pillars that form the foundation of the living document that is the RMS Strategic Plan. These pillars are:
- School growth, financial stability and marketing
- Comprehensive adolescent program options
- Delivery of best practice in Montessori education and curriculum
- Focus on environment and sustainability
- Development of School culture.
The Board has prepared a summary of achievements since the Strategic Plan was developed and outlined specific emphases for the remainder of 2018/2019. Please download the pdf documents below.

The School’s constitution is the document which sets out the rules for how the School governs itself. Inherent in these rules are fundamental beliefs about what the School aims to do, how the School makes decisions, and who is responsible for what.
Several meetings are held during the year at RMS. Please find the current AGM meeting minutes along with other parent inclusive meeting minutes.
