Our school council is a collective of parents, teachers, principal, staff and community representatives that supports and enhances our students learning.

The school council has three main responsibilities:

  • finance: overseeing the development of the school's annual budget and ensuring proper records are kept
  • strategic planning: participating in the development and monitoring of the school's strategic plan
  • policy development and review: developing, reviewing and updating policies that reflect our school's values

Key functions of the school council includes:

  • raising funds for school related purposes
  • maintaining school grounds and facilities
  • entering into contracts
  • reporting annually to the school community and the Department
  • creating interest in the school in the wider community
  • representing and taking the views of the community into account
  • regulating and facilitating after-hours use of school premises and grounds
  • operating a children’s service at the school
