Penola 2021 – Issue 18

On Monday 22 November, we will hold our Annual Community Meeting in the hall for the School Advisory Council and the P&F. The names have changed slightly as the Board is now referred to as the School Advisory Council and the AGM is now an ACM. This is all because CEWA became incorporated a couple of years ago and we are now a company. The Catholic Education Commission is now the Board for the whole system. However, we still want to engage with our parents, but it is  more in an advisory role as the CEWA Board now makes the larger financial decisions for the schools. There won’t be an election for the School Advisory Council this year. However, the P&F are very keen to get more members. The P&F plays a critical role in our community by their friend raising and to a lesser degree, fund raising, activities. All of this helps make our community the great place that it is. We are Christ centred and child focused and all the things we do are ultimately for the benefit of our beautiful students. Please feel free to come along to these meetings. They are fairly brief, and nibbles and drinks will be provided at the beginning. We will make an early start at 5.15pm and it should be finished by 7.00pm.
