All government schools in Victoria have a school council, a legally constituted body given powers to set the key directions of a school within statewide guidelines. In doing this, a school council is able to directly influence the quality of education that the school provides for its students.

Being a member on school council does require commitment, time and a hands on approach.

This year there will again have a number of projects earmarked for school councilors to action and oversee.

We would be particularly interested in a school council member who could offer skills and enthusiasm in following areas:

  • An interest in helping to develop our external and internal environments.
  • An interest in further building our positive school culture to promote community pride and participation in events. Assist in overseeing school events, and increasing event participation and targeted marketing.
