School Advisory Council Forums

Forums have taken place in May to unpack the Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools (MACS) Statement of Mission, Working Together in Mission charter and the eleven sections of the Terms of Reference for School Advisory Councils issued by the MACS board for the purpose of supporting the work of the School Advisory Councils.

The forums on 20 October are open to all Custodians of Mission (Parish Priests, Canonical Administrators, Archbishop’s nominees) and Principals to attend. Register for either a morning (11.00 am) or afternoon (1.30pm) session here.

The address by Fr Mark Reynolds, Episcopal Vicar for Catholic Schools will provide an opportunity to focus attention on mission as you engage with Fr Mark on Working Together in Mission and includes:

  • Sharing strategies, challenges and opportunities for mission
  • Update on School Advisory Councils
  • Registering school’s current progress

The forums will mark the official launching of the print version of Working Together in Mission charter.
