Governing Council meets twice a term. Members of Governing Council represent the views of the local community about the priorities and educational needs of the students in the local school community. Please contact the Principal if you are interested in seeking election at the next AGM. Parents are welcome to attend these meetings. Only elected members can vote.
The Department for Education and Child Development’s Policy on School Governance states:
“Strong and effective governance in schools, preschools and children’s centers offers sites a robust, transparent decision making body which brings the site leader, staff, parents, students and the community together with a shared ownership of governance related matters. It promotes a culture of accountability, performance, monitoring and review.
Governing councils provide a mechanism for parents and community members to be positively engaged in shaping the vision and values of their site. This holistic approach to community engagement supports good practice and provides an avenue to achieve positive education and wellbeing outcomes for children and young people”.
