The role of the College Council is to provide overall governance of the school which includes setting the strategic direction, providing oversight of plans and budgets established by the school management, and monitoring the performance of the school against its Strategic Plan.
It is the function of the Principal and Executive Team to manage the operational organisation of the school in accordance with the Strategic Plan and College policies. The College Council and Executive work in partnership to achieve the College’s shared purpose and vision.
Some things to consider:
- School Councils work best when people from a variety of different backgrounds, with a range of expertise, work together as a team.
- Members must have an understanding of the governance role of a Council and the importance of independence and confidentiality.
- Members are prepared to commit the time and effort needed to ensure the work of the Council is successful.
