Governing Council

Ocean View College welcomes and encourages our Parents and Caregivers to participate in the decision making process of the school to include them as part of our school community. This ensures transparency and allows a voice for families.

Governing Council meets twice a term on a Monday night – only 8 nights a year

The role of the Governing Council is to:

  • Affirm the school strategic directions, priorities and general programs (including the site learning plan)
  • Develop local policy
  • Inform decisions about financial and other resource allocation
  • Oversee improvements to school buildings, grounds and facilities
  • Ensure parent participation in decision making processes
  • Report to the department and community on the school’s activities and outcomes

The Principal is responsible for the educational leadership, supervision and management of the school.
