School councils enable greater involvement of the school community and other stakeholders, such as industry, in setting the strategic direction for the school.
The school council must perform its role in accordance with legislation and in a way that achieves the best learning outcomes for the school's students.
The school council:
- monitors the school's strategic direction
- approves plans, policies and other strategic school documents including the annual estimate of revenue and expenditure
- monitors the implementation of the plans, policies and other strategic documents
- advises the school principal about strategic matters.
The School Council meet approximately once per term, with nominations for members taken at the start of the school year when there is a vacancy to fill. At this time we publish how nominations can be made on this page.
