School Council

All Government Schools in Victoria have a School Council.  The School Council is a group of people who are given the power to set the key directions of the school.  This means the School Council plays a very important role in your child’s education as they work to enhance the educational opportunities for all students.  They form a key partnership with the staff.

Do I have what it takes to be on school council?

  • You need to be keen, but you don’t need to be an expert.
  • You need to like people and be able to work in a team.
  • You do need to be prepared to commit the time needed to ensure the work of council gets done.
  • We meet twice a term, on a Monday night at 7pm.
  • Meetings run for about 2 hours.  
  • Each councillor may also be on a sub committee that meets once per term.
  • School Councils work best when they have people from a variety of backgrounds and who have different experiences.
