Advisory Council Members

The Salesian College Advisory Council offers support to the Principal and staff of the College to ensure that the essential vision of St John Bosco and the Salesians is continued. The Advisory Council, therefore, becomes a vehicle for the Principal to seek advice and direction on the future development of the College. It is the role of the Principal and the staff to consider operational matters of a day to day concern.
