The College Council
The role of the College Council is to assist the Principal, on behalf of the College community, to fulfil his responsibilities relating to the College as a Catholic school, and to assist in the formulation of policy in areas such as finance, property, College operations, future planning, and the public profile of the College.
Council members are appointed by the Provincial following a process of nomination coordinated by the Chairperson, Deputy Chairperson and the Principal. Appointments are for a period of three years and reappointment is possible. The Council includes the Principal, the Business Manager and a nominee of the Provincial. Other positions are filled by parents or Old Scholars who have expertise in governance or a background in the necessary areas that exist - School governance, including education, finance, law or administration.
The Council is assisted by two main sub-committees which provide recommendations in the areas of finance and building. The Finance Committee comprises accountants and financial planners who provide advice about fee structure, loans, auditing and financial modelling, while the Building Committee seconds expertise in the area of construction management and strategic planning.
