The St John's School Advisory Council is a parent group who works collaboratively with the School Principal. The Council provides insight, advice and feedback that helps guide current operations and future planning.
The School Advisory Council is a strong a link between the Parish, Principal, staff and parents, in relation to the provision of Catholic education in the community. The School Advisory Council promotes community development by fostering a strong interrelationship between the Primary school, secondary colleges and pre-schools.
