College Advisory Council


The College Advisory Council, in representing the Catholic College community, actively promotes and supports the Catholic ethos of the school.

Council members are supported by Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA), and are given access to training and appropriate information courses.

The Council is responsible not only to the local school community, but also to the Catholic Education Commission of Western Australia (CECWA) for the financial administration of the school. It is also entrusted with the duty of planning, on behalf of the school community, with the school staff (through the Principal) and with the CECWA to meet the present and future needs of students.

Taking on a position with the College Advisory Council is a wonderful way for parents to get involved and help shape their child’s school. In addition to the normal executive roles, the College Advisory Council may also appoint a range of sub-committees, giving parents a chance to leverage their business acumen or other specialisations.‚Äč

CEWA is currently undertaking a review of the functions and mandate of school advisory councils.
