Our school has an active school council with representatives from Year 2 to Year 6. They hold council meetings once every three weeks and take the key points of the meeting back to their own class for feedback and suggestions. The school council meets with Mrs Statham, the Assistant Principal, and on a monthly basis feedback to the staff during a staff meeting. The school council hold their own budget and fundraise throughout the year by engaging the school in different activities from Dress up days to Sponsored Runs. These funds are used support our chosen charity. This year our chosen charity across the Newman Catholic Collegiate is 'Caritas'.
