GOVERNING COUNCIL

The Governing Council is the main parent decision-making body in the school. It manages many aspects of the school, including policy approval, finances, grounds and facilities.

The Governing Council members are elected at the AGM and members represent the whole school community.

The Governing Council meets twice a term, usually during the day.

INFORMATION and COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY

Students have access to computers and the Internet as a normal part of the learning process.

The school has a network of PC computers, a computer suite with 30 computers and all classrooms have two computers available for student use.

All computers have access to the Internet.

Student use of the Internet is closely monitored by the school.

CUSTODY PARENTS

Non custodial parents cannot be denied access to their children unless a copy of a legal custody order clearly stating who the custodial parent is, is held on record.

It is the responsibility of all parents who have a current custody order in place to advise the school and make provision for a copy of the order to be held on file.

All information held by the school is strictly confidential.
