School Council

All schools are required to conduct annual elections for School Council during the February/March period.
There are three different categories of members on School Council – Parents, Department (DET) employees and Community Members.

At our 2024 election, we have 4 parent 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 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 Councilors are also required to be on a subcommittee of School Council – Finance, Buildings and Grounds or Community Links.

Can I encourage parents who would like to be part of School Council to ensure that they are nominated.  Parents may be nominated by another parent or they can nominate themselves. Nominations open Thursday 8 February and close on Thursday 15 February. Nomination Forms will be available at the Office.
