In essence, the role of school council is one of helping to set the long term future for the school and maintaining oversight (not management) of the school's operation. The School Council is a legal entity composed of Department of Education employees and unpaid voluntary members elected by the school community. School Councils play a key role in all Victorian government schools. As the governing body, a school council can positively influence the quality of education provided to students in their school.
Areas of responsibility include:
Members of the school community are welcome to attend our monthly meetings.
Each year, School Council elections take place in Term 1 and the process must be completed by 31st March. The principal is responsible for conducting the election. Information detailing the number of vacancies is provided to parents during February, inviting nominations for School Council. School councillors are elected for either a two-year or one-year term.
There are two separate representatives within a school community:
President: Natasha Kidman
Vice President: Liz Hoath
Treasurer: Geoff Barnett
Secretary: Paige Hurley
