Meetings are held in the staff room at 7pm, usually on the third Tuesday of the month during the school term. Members of the school community are welcome to attend these meetings.

The School Council also has various sub-committees. Parent membership on these committees is welcomed. Parents are encouraged to contact School Council members to discuss any relevant issues they would like raised at Council.
