The School Council

What is the School Council

The School Council consists of the Principal, the President of the Community Forum, two other parent representatives and three other school staff representatives.  To this group, up to four other representatives may be added – two student representatives, elected from the Year 11/12 membership of the SRC and two representatives appointed to the Council from the local community.

When does it meet?

The council meets at least eight times per year.

The major roles of the School Council are to:-

  • Determine the aims and educational goals of the school
  • Identify local educational needs and priorities
  • Determine local student welfare policies and the school's Fair Discipline Code
  • Determine the school's broad budget priorities and develop a budget plan
  • Advise the Principal on the implementation of the budget plan
