School Council met on Monday 28th of October to discuss all things governance. We started the meeting with some correspondence from the Department of Education and Training reminding the council of its responsibilities as a governing body of the school. As a body, we are bound by strict processes and protocols. The dedicated staff and parents who are on school council or a subcommittee of school council at MPW, work well and truly within these rules to ensure the smooth running of all things related to governance. Thank you for your hard work and dedication.
JSC reported a successful Show Day where rules around sustainability and environment were adhered to and did not take away from the huge success of the day. Thank you to the members of Junior School Council.
In her principal’s report, Kerri congratulated Barbara Springfield to the role of Assistant Principal.
