Kadina Memorial Governing Council

We can’t do it without you.

Education is a partnership between home and school and in order to do it well we need your advice and input about what you think would work for your child and the student body as a whole. It is fair to say we all want what is best for our children.

How do you get that?

One way is to join Governing Council and become a member of a committed group of parents, like you, who meet once a month for a couple of hours to discuss, inform and decide on a range of issues to do with the school and its direction.

Governing Council members contribute to and advise on school policy matters, school improvement, finance issues, asset management, school systems and communication methods. They also help at many school events such as Sports Day, end of year assemblies and celebrations.

What’s in it for me?  It’s a big list, starting with supporting not only your own child’s education but that of others.

Council members describe a sense of satisfaction at seeing a job well done and an ongoing feeling of achievement as they walk through the school, knowing it is a better place for the students and staff to learn as a result of their efforts.

The Annual General Meeting of the KMS Governing Council is held in Term 1, with the entire school community invited to attend.  Nominations for Governing Council are sought from those attending and from a nomination form published in the KMS Newsletter prior to the meeting.

Meetings are usually held in the Hospitality Centre and dates advised via our school calendar.
