From the Council Chair

The Penrhos College Council is responsible to the Uniting Church in Australia for the governance of Penrhos College. The Principal is appointed by, and is accountable to, the Council for delivery of the College’s teaching and learning program and the management of the school.

In keeping with the College Council’s responsibility for setting and monitoring the Principal’s Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), I can advise the College continues to track well in the areas of community engagement, financial stability, academic and co-curricular performance, and legislative compliance under Kalea Haran’s exemplary leadership.

I gratefully acknowledge my fellow Council members, who give so generously of their time and expertise, and also the College Leadership Group for their wonderful passion and commitment.

It is my honour and privilege to serve you as both a proud member of the College alumni and Chair of College Council.
