Parent Advisory Council PAC

The objective of the Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is to strengthen the link between parents and the school. It assists with issues and concerns raised from time to time by the school and parent body which are then researched. The PAC provides advice and makes recommendations for further action by the school.
The areas of activity of the PAC include:
  • Issues relating to the education of the children, conduct, discipline and community values, as far as they affect the parents and the school
  • Coordination of parent and other parent group activities
  • Implementation of appropriate communication procedures between the school and the parent body
  • Acting as a consultative forum on any issues referred to it by the school, which fall within its Terms of Reference.
In addition, subcommittees exist for all security, fundraising, representation, environment, marketing and communication issues.
Nominations are called from parents annually, and only parents with a child at the school may be elected.
The members of the PAC are as follows:
