School Council


The next School Council meeting will be held on Thursday, 6 June 2019 in the Library.

The role of the Council is that of involvement in the governance of the school.  This means taking part in the shaping and monitoring of the school’s objectives, priorities and general policy directions.  In addition, other functions are specified in the legislation.

The Council does not have a role in school management or the day-to-day running of the school.  This is the responsibility of the Principal and involves educational leadership and the effective day-to-day administration, supervision and control of the school and its staff.

The functions of a School Council are to:

Take part in:

  • establishing and reviewing from time to time, the school’s objectives, priorities and general policy directions;
  • the planning of financial arrangements necessary to fund those objectives, priorities and directions;
  • evaluating the school’s performance in achieving them; and
  • formulating codes of conduct for students at the school.

Determine, in consultation with students, their parents and staff a dress code for students when they are attending or representing the school.

Promote the school in the community.

Approve:

  • charges and contributions for the provision of certain materials, services and facilities;
