The College Council is the peak policy decision making body in the College community. It has the power to select and appoint the College Principal. Its responsibilities include curriculum development, financial management, facilities maintenance and fund-raising.

The Council consists  of seventeen elected members – six parent members, five staff members (including the College Principal), two student members and four community members. The latter represent the College’s Community Voice and includes the current College Captains.

Business is normally transacted at a sub-committee level and ratified at full Council meetings. The standing sub-committees are Policy and Development and Finance and Facilities.

Council meets at least eight times a year, normally on the first Tuesday evening each month or the nearest available Tuesday in the case of vacations.

The College Council is led by the President supported by the Vice President, Secretary (College Principal) and the Treasurer. Permanent observers include the Assistant Principals and the Business Manager.
