The School Council of Discovery College is composed of representatives from parents, teachers, and staff of the College, as well as representatives from the wider community. The purpose of the School Council is to help the school provide the best possible education for DC students. School Councillors undertake their roles on a voluntary basis and are prepared to share their knowledge, skills and experience for the good of the College as a whole. The guidance offered and decisions made form part of the framework within which our teachers work.
The main responsibilities of the School Council include working with the Principal to establish the school’s strategic direction, approving the curriculum, ensuring that the needs of students are met and approving the annual budget. School Councils are also responsible for the approval of senior appointments, the implementation of effective procedures for staff management and development and, with the Chief Executive Officer, for appraising the performance of the Principal. The School Council also advises the ESF CEO and the ESF Board on issues affecting the school.
The School Council welcomes your feedback and comments. If you wish to contact any of the parent representatives on the School Council, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. For other inquiries, you may contact the principal, James Smith, at email@example.com.
