Parent Council

The Santa Maria College Parent Council is a parent group supporting the College community. The key aims of the Parent Council are to:

  • Build a community of supportive parents
  • Support the College in providing a broad and fulfilling educational experience
  • Create opportunities for parents to interact, contribute and belong to the extended Santa Maria community.

The Parent Council Executive meets on a regular basis and organises social and service events for both parents and students. In partnership with the College Management Team, the Parent Council contributes to areas of need in the College.

The Parent Council has four Special Interest Groups (SIGs) which are led and coordinated by members of the Executive. The SIGs include:

  • Parent Network
  • Mozzies
  • Santa Ministry
  • Boarders’ Parents’ Group

Each SIG is responsible to lead and coordinate a different parent group. This in turn contributes to achieving the overall aims of the Parent Council and the College.

The Parent Council is always looking for parents who are willing to volunteer some of their time to help support the College and the students, staff, parents and friends who form our community.
