Brunswick Secondary College is committed to building the culture of community.
To achieve the best possible learning outcomes for our students, the school actively pursues and promotes collaboration between staff, students, parents and carers. In addition to this, we seek and welcome community partners who can enhance and enrich our learning programs.
Collaboration with our parent/carer community is highly valued.
The goals of the Parents’ Association are to foster community and school spirit, to enhance the educational process through a variety of activities and events, and to support the development of school facilities and programs.
In recent years the Parents’ Association raised and contributed significant funds toward the purchase and installation of ‘value-add’ equipment for the school gymnasium, classroom airconditioning and outdoor seating – greatly appreciated by the wider school community. Members have also undertaken and actively supported key events, including the annual Trivia Night, Twilight Market and Parent Information evenings, as well as coordinated other social and fundraising opportunities.
All parents/carers of Brunswick Secondary College students are encouraged to join the Parents’ Association, and ideas and suggestions are welcome. To receive updates of upcoming meetings, events and opportunities to volunteer and to find out more about the BSC Parents’ Association, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
School Council is the school’s major governing body.
The Brunswick Secondary College School Council comprises of
- 6 (six) parent/carer members
- 4 (four) Department of Education & Training staff members
- 2 (two) student members and
- 4 (four) community members – one of these positions is shared by the current School Captains
The school invites current School Captains to serve in the community member category: this allows up to four students to actively participate in School Council discussion and decisions. Together, the staff, parent and student members oversee operations and establish the broad direction and vision for the school.
The Brunswick Secondary College School Council meets a minimum of twice per term. Nominations are called for in February each year, and an election held if required. Parents/Carers are welcome to contact the School Council President via email@example.com if they would like to raise issues at School Council. Our school community can only be enhanced by ensuring ideas, information and concerns are shared and addressed.
Brunswick Secondary College is proudly committed to building strong and enduring community and professional partnerships.
The school is part of a dynamic local community that is vibrant, diverse and socially aware. When we partner with community-based organisations and businesses, together we create a mutually beneficial framework from which all stakeholders benefit.
The school benefits from opportunities to promote student health, wellbeing, engagement, opportunity, contribution and inclusion – all of which lead to better learning outcomes. Businesses that partner with us enjoy a platform to demonstrate their commitment and care for their local community.
