The Our Lady of the Cape School Advisory Council (SAC) is entrusted with the duty of planning, on behalf of the school community, with the school staff (through the Principal) and with the Catholic Education Commission of Western Australia, to meet the present and future needs of the school and the students. Although the SAC has no authority in the internal operation of the school, it is a legitimate function of the SAC to provide an advisory service to the Principal and staff with respect to policy development and review. In carrying out this role, the SAC is advisory: it does not have an operational or administrative role. The SAC’s sole connection to the operation of the school is through the Principal.
The SAC has no managerial responsibility for the staff. The selection, appointment and review of staff is delegated solely to the Principal by the Bishop of the Diocese.
The School Board finances consist of:
- Parent paid school fees
- State Government Grants
- Australian Government Grants
- Parish Contributions
The SAC Annual General Meeting is held during Term 4 of each year. At this meeting, a report on the School Board’s activities and the following year’s budget is presented. The election of new SAC members also takes place at this meeting. All parents are invited and expected to attend this important meeting of the school community.
