Urrbrae Agricultural High School has a strong tradition of involving the community in school activities.
The Urrbrae Agricultural High School Council provides advice to the school to strengthen and support both education at Urrbrae and the position of public education in the community. This includes advice on:
- educational programs
- improvements to grounds, facilities and equipment and school services to enhance students’ education, health and welfare.
School Council also plays a key role in fundraising to support the school community.
The Council comprises twelve parent positions. Terms are usually for two years, with six parents elected at each AGM in February. In addition, the School Council includes a representative of Urrbrae’s Indigenous families, the Old Scholars Association, School Representative Council, Teachers, the City of Mitcham and the local South Australian Member of Parliament, plus the School Principal and School Finance Manager.
School Committees at Urrbrae Agricultural High School include Finance, Curriculum, Wellbeing, and ICT, each with parent and student representation. There is also an Urrbrae Environment Focus Committee, which parents are encouraged to join.
