School Council

The role of School Council is to support the Principal in the running of the school.

All government schools in Victora have a School Council. They are legally formed bodies that are given powers to set the 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. The role of School Council is:

• Establish the broad direction and vision of the school within the school's community

• Develop and monitor the school strategic planDevelop, review and update school policies

• Develop, review and monitor the Student Code of Conduct and the School Dress Code

• Raise funds for school related purposesApprove the annual budget and monitor expenditure

• Maintain the school's grounds and facilities

• Enter into contracts (e.g. cleaning, construction work)

• Report annually to the school community and to DEECD

• Stimulate interest in the school generally

School Council does not manage the day to day running of the school. For example, it does not employ teaching staff, decide which classes students will be assigned to, or sort out issues relating to individual teachers and students and/or parents. Nor does it discuss individual issues relating to teachers or staff or parents - these are very clearly management roles, and therefore the principal's job. School Councillors are not appointed to represent specific interest groups or permit special interests to dominate the agenda of the council.
