Broken Bay representatives participate on the Catholic Education Commission (NSW), its committees, and committees of the Catholic Commission for Employment Relations (CCER) which liaise with the NSW government on education, school, and employment issues. These NSW organisations are, in turn, linked nationally with corresponding organisations responsible for liaison with the Federal government.

The school property on Bobbin Head Road has been host to Catholic schools for more than 100 years. The property, first owned by the Sisters of Mercy, was home to the Mount St Bernard private boarding college, managed by the Sisters for girls from Years 5 to 10 (formerly the Leaving Certificate). The original Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School for Kindergarten to Year 6 was located on the property on the corner block on Telegraph Road. Over time, the two schools were combined to the current Bobbin Head Road location as a Kindergarten to Year 6 primary school.
