School Council

What is the role of School Council?

 

Under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006, a school council has particular functions in setting and monitoring the school's direction. Councillors need to understand their role, the powers and functions of the school council and how they are required to work with the principal and the school community.

 

Functions of a School Council

The functions of a school council are specified in the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 and include:

  • establishing the broad direction and vision of the school within the school's community
  • participating in the development and monitoring of the school strategic plan
  • approving the annual budget and monitoring expenditure
  • developing, reviewing and updating school policies
  • raising funds for school-related purposes
  • maintaining the school’s grounds and buildings
  • entering into contracts (such as for cleaning or construction work)
  • reporting annually to the school community and to the Department
  • creating interest in the school in the wider community
  • informing itself of and taking into account the views of the community
  • regulating and facilitating the after-hours use of school premises and grounds
  • making provision for a preschool program at the school or other premises controlled by the Minister

 

Nominations to join the School Council are held in the first term each year. If you are interested in knowing more about the Council or joining then please either call the administration team on (03) 9796 7150 for a friendly chat or make an appointment.
