Governing council

This is a representative body comprising of elected parents, the Principal and staff representatives. The responsibilities of the Governing Council are:

  • involvement in the preparation of the school’s Statement of Purpose and general management plans
  • to consider recommendations and a proposed budget from the Finance Committee
  • to oversee the upgrading and maintenance of school grounds and facilities
  • to inform parents of education initiatives and practices in the school
  • to approve the Annual Report

Governing Council meets at 3.15pm in weeks 4 and 8, at the school. Parents are invited and encouraged to join Governing Council, the associated committees or attend the Council more informally before making a commitment. The Annual General Meeting is held in term 1 each year.
