Durack College reflects the philosophy of the Sisters of the Society of the Sacred Advent. The College Advisory Council leads the College’s mission to provide a nurturing, respectful and scholarly environment for Collegians.

The Durack College Advisory Council is a sub-committee of the St Margaret's Anglican Girls School Council made up of the Principal, Head of Boarding, Director of Business, College Director and three members appointed by the School Council. The College Director reports directly to the Principal. The founding Chairperson of the former St Margaret's College Advisory Council from 2015 to 2017 was Janine Walker. The newly appointed Chairperson of Durack College Advisory Council, effective from 2018, is Kate Gray.
