Parents Council

Here at Oatlands College we have a very active Parents Council.  The Council is run by a committee of volunteers who work very hard on behalf of the general parent body and all of the students of the college.  The council elects officers: Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer to run our affairs and also elects two representatives to the Board of Management of Oatlands College.
