These two bodies play an integral role in the school. The Governing Council is a policy making, strategic body, whilst the PTA is more involved in supporting the School in its endeavours to promote social interaction amongst the parent body, and to raise funds for the "nice to haves' items not provided for in the school budget.
Below is an outline of the roles of the governing council, as well as the current members who are serving on them.
