Governing Council

Parent Nominations for 2020 Governing Council are now open!

Marden Senior College has successfully transitioned from adult re-entry college to specialist senior secondary college with a younger student cohort. Consequently the membership of the Governing Council has been changed to include parents.

Governing Council meetings are conducted twice a term on Monday afternoons, at 4.00pm. The purpose of these meetings is to oversee the school budget and site improvement plan, as well as to discuss any other happenings at the college. The Governing Council also determines policy and at all times works to support the principal ensuring Marden Senior College is a safe and inclusive learning environment at the forefront of education practice.

The first meeting of the 2020 Governing Council is scheduled for Monday 23 March (the AGM).
