The St John’s School Advisory Council, in representing the school community, actively promote and support the Catholic ethos of the school. The School Advisory Council is the financial advisory body who works with the Principal to ensure strong financial management and strategic planning for the current and future needs of the School. The School Advisory Council strives to support the staff and school community in the work that they do, both recognising and commending the excellent professional and pastoral reputation of the school.
The School Advisory 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 CECWA to meet the present and future needs of students.
At the beginning of each school year, the School Advisory Council is inducted and commissioned. Council members are supported by Catholic Education Western Australia, and are given access to training and appropriate information courses.
The role of the St John’s School Advisory Council is one of setting the long-term future for the school and in providing additional financial and strategic planning and management to help the school achieve the best outcome for every student.
Taking on a position with the School Advisory Council is a wonderful way for parents to get involved and help shape the school. In addition to the normal Executive Roles, the School Advisory Council also appoint a range of sub-committees, giving parents a chance to utilise their business expertise or other specialisations to ensure a rewarding and bright future for our students.
The School Advisory Council has nine members consisting of six parent representatives that are elected for a two year term at the Annual Community Meeting, the School Principal and the Parish Priest and a P&F Representative.
