Bradshaw School Council is the governance body that decides the school’s strategic direction and oversees the school’s operations. The council is made up of a team of elected parent representatives and staff members whose purpose is to serve and promote the interests of the students.
Representatives are elected at the Annual General Meeting in February each year. Meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of every month of the school term. Members typically serve a two year term.
Council also operates sub-committees with a variety of focus areas. Parents do not need to be a member of school council to serve on a sub-committee.
