School Council


Improving School Governance

The Victorian Government recognises the importance of school councils and their relationship with their local community.  As the governing body, a school council can positively influence the quality of education provided to students in their school.

Being a member of the school council is a rewarding and challenging experience.  Acting as a team, council supports the principal to provide the best possible educational outcomes for students.


Although each councillor brings their own valuable life skills and knowledge to the role, councillors may need to develop skills and acquire knowledge in areas that may be unfamiliar to them.  These might include developing the broad direction and vision for the school, interpreting data or financial statements, working effectively as a council, or understanding legislative and policy requirements.
