Governing council

The Governing Council is comprised of interested parents, who are elected annually at the AGM, the Principal and staff. Meetings are held twice a term.

Governing Councils have an important role to play in schools. Governing Councils set the broad direction of the school (in conjunction with the site leader). They provide community voice and input to help support improved student learning. Governing Councils also develop broad directional policy that facilitates the achievement of the school’s vision and broad direction. They also initiate and approve recommendations and strategies, which must conform to government policy, industrial agreements, Department for Education policy and direction and the site’s decision making structures.
