Our college council plays a vital role in the educational opportunity and outcomes of all students. It is given the power to set the key directions for the college and directly influences the quality of education we provide.
School councils are groups who make decision that set the direction of the school. They:
- Help create and check the school’s budget
- Contribute to the school strategic plan
- Make decisions on policies like investments, payments by parents, dress code.
In essence, the role of college council is one of setting the long-term future goals and maintaining oversight of the school’s operation. The council comprises of parent, department and co-opted members.
Parents on school councils provide important viewpoints and have valuable skills and a range of experiences and knowledge that can help inform and shape the direction of the school.
Those parents who become active on a school council find their involvement satisfying and may also find that their children feel a greater sense of belonging.
