​The School Council plays a key role bringing the community and school closer together in a spirit of cooperation to solve difficult education problems, improve academic achievement, provide support for teachers and administrators, and bring parents into the decision-making process.
 
The objectives are to:
  • Strengthen the partnership by promoting meaningful parent and community participation and actively seek the views of the school community.
  • Maintain a high ethical standard and regularly review and evaluate our own performance and effectiveness.
  • Increase the profile of the school within the broader community.
  • Strengthen the inclusiveness and representation of all students within the school.​
The council can positively influence the quality of education provided to students by focussing on improving student learning outcomes and educational opportunities from a governance perspective. The School Council is actively involved in the allocation of funding, the development of policies, the School Strategic Plan, and the Annual Implementation Plan.
 
The effectiveness of a school council relies both on the skills and expertise of its individual members and on council working as a team. The council meets once per term. The council consists of the principal (Jonathan Gagen), a teaching staff representative (Joy Pohlner), a non-teaching staff representative (Brooke Arseneau), the P&C President (Renee Coffey), and two parent representatives (Renee Rankin and Jessica Jennings). The School Council Chair is Renee Rankin.
 
If there is a particular subject that you would like to see addressed by the School Council, you are welcome to contact the Principal or School Council Chair via the school office​.  
 
You can also raise potential matters for discussion via the P&C, either by attending a meeting (see calendar for meeting dates) or emailing the P&C executive​.
