2014 School Council Elections

School councils play a key role in Victorian government schools. A school council develops a vision for the school in collaboration with all members of the school community and is actively involved in the development of and endorses the school’s strategic plan.
A school council’s objectives are to:
  • assist in the efficient governance of the school
  • ensure that its decisions affecting students of the school are made having regard, as a primary consideration, to the best interests of the students
  • enhance the educational opportunities of the students of the school
  • ensure the school and the council comply with any requirements of this Act, the regulations, a Ministerial Order or a direction, guideline or policy issued under this Act.

We have several vacancies for 2014 and invite parents to nominate if they would like to participate in the governance and continued improvement of our school. The time commitment is not overwhelming and generally consists of a monthly meeting at the school.

Please come into the school or call us if you would like to nominate or to find out more information about School Council.

The closing date for nominations is Tuesday February 18th.
