As we come towards the end of the school year, I would like to acknowledge the work of our School Council and thank them for the time and dedication they devote to support the school. This has been a particularly busy year for Council with the building work and a School Review. Two thirds of the council is made up of parent representatives with the other third represented by staff. Together the council oversees the school’s finances, the strategic direction we take and has overall responsibility for fundraising. As part of its fundraising commitment the council provides the volunteers at the monthly Drysdale Market. We are very fortunate to have a team of parents and staff who have the interest and commitment to spend time working with our leadership team to make our school an even better place for your children to be educated.
