The St Patrick’ School Council is calling for nominations to join the Council at the end of 2018. (Please find a nomination form attached to our latest school newsletter). This group is made up of around 10 parents who are interested in the running of the school and can lend their advice and expertise in certain areas. The types of issues that are discussed by the School Council include building & maintenance works, school fees, marketing ideas and more. We receive monthly updates from the Principal, from staff, from the Parish and from the P&F. It is a great way to contribute to your child’s school, while staying in touch with what is going on in and around the school.
Meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month, and generally go for around one hour. Members commit to sit on the Council for a minimum two-year period, with a maximum of six consecutive years. We welcome applications from anyone who may be interested, and I’m happy to chat further with anyone who has any questions. Feel free to contact me on 0408 207 734 or email:firstname.lastname@example.org
