Our School Council consists of ten members. Seven of these are parents elected for a two year term, one teaching representative, the Principal and a community member.
Three of the critical roles of school councils are;
• developing and overseeing the strategic plan;
• approving and overseeing the annual budget, and
• deciding on and reviewing policies.
School Council elections are held annually for half the school council body and elected members hold office for a two year period. An active school councillor will listen to and ask the school community, and sometimes the wider community about their views on topics that council might be considering.
Any parent with suggestions for improvement at the policy level can discuss these with a school council member to be presented at school council meetings.
The principal is an ex-officio member, representing the Department of Education, Employment and Training. School Council elections are held during March each year. The School Council is recognised as the local governing body by the Department of Education and early Childhood Development. Our Council meets regularly at the school. We work within our School Strategic Plan, which is an agreement with the government about what the school will provide over the next four years.
