The Naracoorte High School Governing Council provides strong leadership around vision, strategy, compliance, risk management and financial sustainability to ensure that the School continues to be a leading South Australian education provider.
What do Governing Council Members do? Governing Council governs. This isn’t the same as managing. It’s more about guiding and setting direction. You don’t work alone when you are on a Council. You and the Site Leader have shared responsibilities.
