School Council

All Government schools in Victoria, apart from the Distance Education Centre Victoria, have a school council. They are legally constituted bodies that are given powers to set the key directions of a school within centrally provided guidelines. In doing this, a school council is able to directly influence the quality of education that the school provides for its students.

Our School Council has a total of nine members and three categories of membership: a parent category (six members), a DEECD employee category (4 members); and a Community member category (two members). The council meet at least eight times per year on the following dates.
