School Community Council

Sts Peter and Paul School Community Council

The Council provides the opportunity for members of the school, parish and Archdiocesan community to support the mission of Catholic education at Sts Peter and Paul School. Working with the Parish Priest, Principal, staff and parent body, the Council members provide leadership to the school community. 

The Council has a decision-making role in certain policy areas and an advisory role in others. The policies of the school are always set within the wider mission of Catholic education. In the areas where it has responsibility for the development and monitoring of policy the Council  operates within the policy and procedures determined by the Catholic Education Commission (CEC) and the Catholic Education Office.  

The Council  has responsibility to take decisions in the following areas: 

  • supporting the development of the Catholic ethos of the school;
  • supporting the pastoral care strategies;
  • promoting the school in the local community;
  • approving and monitoring of the school-based budget including the fees collection and remission policy;
  • developing and monitoring of school enterprises;
  • developing capital and maintenance programs;
  • developing local strategic plans (finances, buildings, resources) and contributing to Archdiocesan educational strategic planning;
  • approving school uniform items decided at school level;
  • ensuring that the parish and school community receives the Annual School Council Report;
  • collaborating with the Council Committees;
  • facilitate local school community debate in response to System leadership by the CEC and the CEO in lobbying governments in school funding campaigns; and
  • raise money for resources.
