Working with Children

Volunteers at our school must obtain a Working with Children Check. The Working with Children Check is a minimum checking standard set by the Working with children Act 2005 for those who work with children. To be a volunteer at the School a Working with Children Card provided by the Department of Justice is required. The card is valid for 5 years & free of charge for volunteers. The process for gaining a working with children check is quite simple and free for all volunteers and can be done online. If you require help with the application, please come and see us.

School Council

The School Council provides a forum for the needs of the local community to merge with the Government’s responsibilities in state education.

Responsibilities include:

  • Determining the education policy, goals and priorities of the school through the Strategic Plan and the Annual Implementation Plan
  • Approving the school budget
  • Maintaining and improving buildings and grounds
  • Reporting annually to the school community and DET
  • Fundraising for a variety of school purposes

School Council is composed of eight members elected by the parents of the school, and four members of staff. This council is the governing body of the school and is responsible for the maintenance of the school buildings and grounds, the allocation and spending of government grant monies, curriculum policies, the welfare of pupils and teachers and the future planning and development of the school. Elections are conducted each March at the Annual General Meeting of parents.

School Council meets every third Monday of the month at 7.30 pm. All welcome.
