OLGC School Advisory Council

OLGC School Advisory Council acts as an advisory body to the parish priest and principal on matters concerning the development of the school and the education and wellbeing of the students.

The OLGC School Advisory Council encourages partnership and participation of school, parish and the wider community in the life of the school and parish.

While the provision of a school environment that supports the Catholic ethos is largely the responsibility of the parish priest, principal and school staff, the Advisory Council plays a significant role in supporting the spiritual and educational welfare of students.


The purpose of the School Advisory Council is to: 

  • act as an advisory body to the parish priest and principal, on matters concerning education in the parish 
  • act as a forum for discussion on matters concerning education in the parish primary school 
  • provide a link between the parish priest, principal, teachers and parishioners in relation to the provision of Catholic education in the parish community
  • promote community development by fostering a strong interrelationship between parish and the parish primary school, Catholic secondary colleges and pre-schools
