Council Council

Let us guide you Let us guide you

The School Council has the ultimate responsibility for all matters relating to the running of the School. 

The School Council provides the formal leadership of the strategic framework, and provides long-term direction to conform to a strategic plan.

The School Council also provides loyal but critical support for the School Executive, led by the Principal. Its role is to govern the School and not to be involved in its day-to-day management. It is the School Executive’s role to manage the School in accordance with the strategic goals set by the School Council and under its direction. The School Council does not have a management function. 

The School Council has overall responsibility to ensure that the School is well-managed and that its operations are successful. It must do all things necessary to ensure that the School meets its objects as set out in the School’s Constitution.
