School Council

All government schools in Victoria have a school council. They are legally constituted bodies that are 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.

School Council has a number of responsibilities including assisting in the efficient governance of the school, enhancing the educational opportunities of students at the school and ensuring that the best interests of students are considered in decision making. 

It participates in the development and monitoring of the school strategic plan and school policy and plays an important role in overseeing the school’s financial operations and budget. Through its sub-committees, School Council also focuses particularly on student services, educational policy, engagement and communication, buildings and grounds, and finance.
