School Community

School Council

School councillors are elected to a term of office for two years.  Elections take place in March of each year when half of the Council representation is elected.  They have the chief responsibility for the administration of the school and its policies.  The Council consists of 8 elected parents, 3 Department of School Education members, Principal and 3 co-opted non Department of School Education members.

These members work on various sub committees such as:

  • Curriculum
  • Environmental
  • Parents & friends (including Fundraising) and
  • Finance

Councillors are there for you to share your ideas with about our school, its development, its future, its resources and the school policies. An updated list of School Councillors is published each year immediately after the annual elections and recorded in the school directory.  The School Council extends the opportunity for wider participation by parents through various sub-committees.  Parents and Guardians are very much encouraged to join any committee that interests them.

The General meeting is held in March each year.  The School Council and Principal’s Report are presented along with financial statements of the preceding year and proposed budget for the current year. Parents have the opportunity to voice their opinions on school matters and question the past or proposed activities. All Parents and Guardians are welcome to attend. Summaries of School Council meetings are provided in the newsletters following each meeting.

Parents & Friends

We have an active Parents & Friends group that assist us with lots of activities and fundraising. meetings are held in the school kitchen, and members are updated through facebook messenger groups. Sometimes the SRC joins us with Parents & Friends to create extra support for school events. Events have included Easter Fair, Annual Disco, Special days, Pop corn day etc.

The Parents & Friends group has helped to fundraise for a new playground in 2018. We were super excited!
