School Advisory Council

The School Advisory Council has a number of very important governance roles to play with regard to the development of the school. One of its critical roles is to oversight and approve matters which have a financial implication for the school. The Council also acts as a consultative forum for the Principal on issues such as:

  • faith formation of students and staff
  • curriculum development
  • property and maintenance
  • administration
  • human resources
In addition the School Advisory Council also provides timely, appropriate advice as requested and assists the Principal in monitoring school effectiveness.

As a body, the School Advisory Council is always seeking to harness the expertise, talents and resources of members of the school community and wider local community for the benefit of the school.

The Council comprises the Parish Priest, the Principal, a representative from the Parish Council, a representative of the Parents & Friends Association and a minimum of four and a maximum of six other elected persons.
