Role/Objects of the School Advisory Council
The vision for Catholic Education Western Australia Limited (CEWA) is to be a Christ-centred, child-focused community of engaged learning environments, inspiring all to actively live the Gospel. Through Quality Catholic Education, as the elaboration of CEWA’s vision, Catholic schools are called to operate in accordance with the four pillars of Catholic Identity, Education, Community and Stewardship.
