The purpose of the Education Subcommittee (the Committee) is to assist the Governing Council of Rose Park Primary School by providing a conduit between the school and families, in the support of student learning.
The Committee serves to represent all in the school community, ensuring that the community’s needs and attitudes, and the cultural and social diversity, are reflected in the school.
The Committee seeks to engage the school community in achieving the best possible outcomes for all students.
