School Council

School Council 

School councils play a vital role in Victorian Government Schools. Participating as a school council member is a rewarding and challenging experience. The school council supports the Principal to provide the best possible educational outcomes for students. 

School Councils have three main responsibilities:

  • Finance – overseeing the development of the school’s annual budget and ensuring proper records are kept of the schools financial operations 
  • Strategic Planning – participating in the development and monitoring of the school Strategic plan
  • Policy Development and Review – developing and reviewing policies that reflect a school’s values and support the school’s broad direction outlined in the Strategic Plan

Other key functions of School Council include:

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