School Council

The School Council is a representative body which is responsible for developing and implementing the policies of the school. The School Council is comprised of parents, teachers, the principal and community representatives. School councillors nominate for the various sub-committees, which report back to council. The sub-committees are Finance, Buildings and Grounds, Policy and Programs, Marketing and PFA. The term of office for school councillors is two years with elections held each February / March. The School Council and each subcommittee meets monthly. Membership of the School Council can be rewarding, and all parents are encouraged to consider nominating for vacancies.
