MLC School Council

The MLC School Council provides a link with the school’s ownership, namely the Uniting Church in Australia, and is the guardian of the vision of the School’s Founders.

The Council is responsible for determining school policy, monitoring performance, and maintaining relationships with external bodies such as government. The Council comprises 11 members. The Council currently has several standing committees including Master Planning and Finance, Audit and Risk Committee.
