College Advisory Council
During 2019 CEWA undertook a process of becoming an Incorporated entity.
Catholic Education Western Australia Limited (CEWA Ltd) commenced operating under its new legal governance structure on 1 January 2020. Consequently, St Mary’s College, are now part of CEWA Ltd.
The Catholic Education Commission of WA (CECWA) is the board of CEWA Ltd and has responsibility for governing Catholic education in WA and for ensuring its financial sustainability. The College Advisory Council, as it was known for many years, is now known and referred to as the College Advisory Council to reflect CEWA Ltd.’s new governance structure.
The existing CECWA Catholic School Board Constitution is currently under review by CECWA to ensure appropriateness and consistency with CEWA Ltd.’s new governance structure. It is due to be implemented in 2022.
Accordingly, 2021 is a year of transition. The existing CECWA Catholic School Board Constitution remains in place, with some modifications to reflect CEWA Ltd.’s new governance requirements. These modifications are outlined in the Transitional Terms of Reference (2020 – 2021). As such the Constitution and the Terms of Reference should be read together.
