A school council’s objectives are to:

  • Assist in the efficient governance of the school
  • Ensure that its decisions affecting students of the school are made having regard, as a primary consideration, to the best interests of the students
  • Enhance the educational opportunities of the students of the school
  • Ensure the school and the council comply with any requirements of the DEECD Act, the regulations, a Ministerial Order or a direction, guideline or policy issued under this Act.


The desired education program of the school is thus developed through the process of consultation and negotiation among those vitally affected. The adopted policies, therefore, reflect the values and the goals of the whole school community.


Elections are held for School Council each year in March.  2014 elections will take place on Tuesday 11th March.  Please consider becoming actively involved in your school through School Council membership.
