about us
school council

Having parents active in our school helps to foster a strong community spirit.

Our School Council is the governing body of the school and operates in accordance with the various School Councils Acts. Responsibilities of the school council include:

  • Policy and Curriculum

  • Finance and Budget

  • Buildings and Environment

  • Fundraising

There are sub-committees of the council to deal with the above areas, as well as for special events, such as the annual Garden Party.
