School Council Message

2020 School Council Elections

Nominations for our School Council open today, Thursday 13 February, and close on Thursday 20 February. Nomination Forms are available at the Office.

All schools are required to conduct annual elections for school council during the February/March period.

At our 2020 election we have 4 Parent vacancies and 1 DET employee vacancies. The term of office for these vacancies is two years.

Parents on school councils provide important viewpoints and have valuable skills that can help shape the direction of the school. Parents who become active on a school council find their involvement satisfying in itself and may also find that their children feel a greater sense of belonging. You do not need any special experience to be on School Council. What you do need is an interest in your child’s school and the desire to work in partnership with others to help shape the school’s future.

School Council meets about two times each term i.e. 8 times over the course of the year. School Councillors are also required to be on a subcommittee of School Council – Finance, Buildings and Grounds or Community Links.

If any parent would like to be part of School Council please ensure that you are nominated.  Parents may be nominated by another parent or they can nominate themselves.
