A Chairperson and Committee of the Council are elected from amongst the authorised representatives.

State Council Meetings

The State Council (11 Parent Diocesan Association Reps, one Indigenous Parent / Carer Rep and one Congregational Parent Rep) of the CCSP meets four times in each calendar year for ordinary meetings with one additional annual general meeting.
