School Council

The School Council participates in the review of the school finances and expenditure control, education overview considering current and long term planning and facilities management for buildings and grounds. It also undertakes to implement and approve policies, programs, structures and activities to support the school academic program.

There are SIX elected parent representatives and FOUR elected staff representatives on Council, serving a two year term. Each year approximately half of the positions become vacant for re-election at which time interested parents and staff are invited to nominate.

The school council monthly meetings are open to parents and interested persons are invited and encouraged to participate in the smaller sub-committees who look after and advise specific management areas within the school.
