Purpose of School council

School council is the legally formed body that is given powers to set the key directions of a school. It is also the major governing body of the school that, within Department of Education and Training (DET) guidelines, decides the future directions for the school and oversees the school's operation. School Council operates under a legislative framework and also sets its own standing orders according to its legal obligations. Standing orders include information such as membership, office bearers, decisions, meetings and sub committees. Each member of School Council is encouraged to share their thoughts in a respectful manner and also support one of our committees. Our committees include:

  • Finance
  • Fundraising and Community Relations
  • Building and Grounds

All members of our School Community are eligible to be on School Council and encouraged to attend meetings, even if not a member. Mettings are held on the last Tuesday of each month and dates for 2017 are as follows:
