Parent Advisory Council

The formal parent body of St Mary's College is recognised for its pro-active involvement in community educational advocacy and achievements for the school. Many sub committees provide support and direction for a range of school activities.


The purposes of the Parent Advisory Council are as follows:

  • To facilitate the views and voice of parents of the College.

  • To assist in developing parent communication both within the College community and between the College and the wider community.

  • To act as a consultative advisory body for the College and the Principal in the provision of Catholic education and the fostering of the Dominican ethos.

  • To assist the Principal and staff in the formulation of policies for referral to the Board of Directors for endorsement.

  • To give support to the College as required in matters such as capital expenditure, the maintenance of College facilities and equipment.

  • To take part in the strategic planning for the future operations of the College.

  • Inform curriculum change, reporting procedures and ICT development with parent voice.

  • Research resolutions and develop proposals for the Parent Advisory Council and Board of Directors pertaining to new initiatives and/or school programs (eg. Uniform changes, canteen matters and ICT issues). The Board will invite participants from Council when appropriate to report on such matters.
