At St Aloysius School the School Advisory Council, and members of our ‘SAC’ play a vital role in the life of our school community, in that, it is essential that parents are given voice in the future direction of the education of their children’s school.
The active School Advisory Council at St Aloysius School provides an avenue for genuine consultation with our school community and enriches the relationship between home and school.
The School Advisory Council is formed to support the principal in the management of the school. This Committee operates for the educational benefit of the students of St Aloysius’ Primary School and the school community.
The School Advisory Council aims to meet at least once per term (8 times per year), and some of the tasks of the Committee are:

Our Catholic School’s income is derived from three sources:
Government Grants: These cover such areas as salaries, superannuation, Workcover, interest on capital debt and central office levies.
Local Contribution: This comprises school fees, Parish grants, interest and donations e.g. fundraising. It is an expectation of the Government, that in order to qualify for Government funds, school communities must contribute financially to their Parish school and thus ensure that a satisfactory standard is maintained both in the education of the children and also in the administration and maintenance of the school. A minimum level of Local Contribution is set each year.
Annual Tuition Fee - $ 940.00
Capital Fee - $ 300.00
Maintenance Levy - $ 50.00
Parent/Teacher/Child interviews will be shared throughout the course of the school year. Student Led Conferences empower students to set goals and to be able to articulate what it is they are learning and
how they learn, these important meetings take place in Term 3.
This is a wonderful way for parents to see how far your child has come as they work through the years.
Formal reporting procedures will be undertaken at appropriate stages during the year including regular additions to the children’s Learning Journals and through the mid-year and end of year reports. St Aloysius currently uses the ‘Simon’ program for formal school reports.
Please note: A parent or a teacher may request an interview any time throughout the year at a mutually convenient time to share concerns or celebrations. Keeping the lines of communication open helps to support your child, especially if they encounter any challenges they are unable to manage.
Students can access before and after school care at St Aloysius’. Parents register their child on a daily or regular basis with Delacombe After School Care and a minibus picks the children up immediately after school from our front entrance. A school staff member will escort your child to the bus where they are checked off and taken to After School Care. The school office can assist you with further details.
We currently have Kelly Sports running at school on a Monday and Thursday afternoon. This is a great way for students to get a little more physical development and gives parents a bit of time after school for other tasks.
Kelly sports commences straight after school and concludes at 4.55 pm.
