Parents and community members are encouraged and welcomed to participate on school council. It is a great way to be involved in developing the long-term direction of the college.
All school councils in Victoria operate under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006. Each school council is established by an Order of the Minister for Education, which specifies the council’s membership, size and configuration, its objectives, powers, functions and accountabilities and the role of its executive officer who is the Principal. The school council has particular functions in setting and monitoring the school’s direction.
School Council meets twice per school term. It is composed of elected representatives from parents, teachers and students. Notice of nomination process and elections is provided through the school newsletter, in Compass and by direct mail-out. School council elections are held each year in February or March every year.
Parents are invited to contact the college office on 9359 1166 to find out more about being on school council.
