Governance

McAuley Community School is a diocesan school. Responsibility for and governance of diocesan schools in Adelaide is through the Catholic Education Office.

Our School Board operates according to the guidelines set down by the South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools (SACCS).

The Board consists of the Parish Priest, Principal, parent representatives, a representative from the Parents & Friends Committee, a representative from the school staff and co-opted members. Our Board ensures that the school fulfils its educational responsibility in the Parish and to administer school finances. Nominations for parent representatives are called for at the beginning of each year and elected at the Annual General Meeting.

Our School Board plays an important role in the development of school policy and is responsible for ensuring that the financial affairs of the school are in accordance with SACCS and diocesan policies and guidelines.

The partnership between the Board and school leadership is critical in everything from master planning to strategic planning for the school and the community. They work together for the benefit of the school.

At the McAuley Community School Board AGM Meeting in March this year, the 2022-24 Strategic Plan, Annual Improvement Plan and reports celebrating the 2021 school year were shared, followed by an election process of school board members.

We are proud to confirm that on completion of the election process, the McAuley Community School Board for 2022 was determined.
