The basics of a School Coordinating Committee
The committee is a way for schools to practice principles of democracy, where each of the members represent and should look for the interests of those whom they represent.  The goal of the Committee is to provide advice to the School Leadership, nurture the relationship between different parts of the school community, and to be a coordinating link between these different parts. A further aim of the Committee is to promote contact between the school and the local community.
