Governing Council Committees
The Governing Council Committee meetings are held once a the month on a Thursdays. Governing Council Committees are the place where teachers, parents, staff and administrators convene to discuss day-to-day concerns of the school and develop policy proposals to be considered by the Governing Council as a whole. Committees are the place where you can have a real impact on matters that directly affect your child and the school as a whole.
Committees effectively represent the interests of parents when parents attend the meetings. We urge you to join us.
