Schol Council Sub-Committee Structure

The work of School Council is undertaken by the subcommittee meetings which occur regularly in the calendar life of the school. Parent volunteers work within the subcommittee structure to support the school and the learning experience of all children. The subcommittees produce minutes about the work they are engaged with in their particular area of school operations. These are reported to School Council. The subcommittee also give a report about their achievements at the Annual General Meeting.

Junior School Council
JSC is the most important of our School Council subcommittees. Student representatives from each classroom group are elected by their peers to meet and discuss issues and ideas relevant to the children’s life at school. Through the JSC meetings and their reports to School Council, children have input into the daily organisation and planning for our school community and environment.

Parents wanting to be involved in any of these School Council subcommittees can contact the Principal via the office for further information. Willing workers and smiling faces always welcome!
