Term 1 School Advisory Bodies Talk with Mike Gaffney
It has been a busy first half of the year at Broken Bay Catholic School Parents (CSP).
The CSO has been establishing School Advisory Bodies (SAB) in schools throughout the Diocese and has reached out to the CSP to ensure parents are well informed about the purpose of SABs. School Advisory Bodies exist to provide support and advice to the school Principal. They are made up of parents, teachers, staff, parish and students and the wider community to support the learning and well-being of all students. School advisory bodies provide a structure and a process for shared leadership and collaborative decision-making and are purely advisory in nature.
In Term 1, Mike Gaffney gave a talk at the Cluster Meetings about the role of School Advisory Bodies in schools and when working effectively, can can guide the school's strategic direction with valuable input from teachers and staff, parents, students, parish and community members. The CSP strongly supports the establishment of SABs in schools as it provides an avenue for parent voice and advocacy. If you would like further information or have feedback about School Advisory Bodies and the role of parents in these bodies, please don't hesitate to get in contact at: email@example.com

Term 2: Leadership Dinners
The CSO supported the CSP this year in providing cluster based leadership dinners for P&F’s / Parent Bodies, School Advisory Bodies and School Leadership Teams.
The evening provided learning and discussion about Authentic Leadership followed by a dinner, to enable collaboration and discussion amongst Leadership Teams.
There was a great turnout and discussion at both evenings and we thank everyone for their participation to make these nights a success!
