Local School Council

The policies of CISDV allow for the Catholic Independent Schools Board of Directors to delegate any of its authority to the Local School Council. The principle of subsidiarity acknowledges that the decision-making process should be influenced by those responsible for implementing the decision and those who will be affected by the implementation.  Our Local School Council Meetings are usually held on the 4th Wednesday of each month, at 7:00pm in the School Library. Interested parents are invited to attend.

The St. Andrew's Regional High Local School Council assumes authority at the local level for those areas of management and operation delegated by the Board of Directors and in accordance with the Constitution and by-laws of the Catholic Independent Schools, Diocese of Victoria (C.I.S.D.V.) and the policies and regulations of the Catholic Independent Schools.  

A list of Local School Council Members and meeting minutes are available below.

This is how I explain what religion at this school teaches me. Sure I learn the history and analyze the Bible, but I also have been forming a set of morals and values that will go with me for the rest of my life. They are the foundation of who I am.

I am very excited to be able to link my Olympic journey, full of trials and tribulations, back to a very important time and place in my life: St. Andrew's Regional High School.

I feel truly blessed to have had the privilege of attending St. Andrew’s Regional High School. St. Andrew’s has given me the opportunity to grow spiritually, academically, artistically, and athletically.
