So what is a School Council and why have one?
The School Council is a group of elected parents and staff from the school community who work towards improved student learning outcomes.
They collaborate with the broader school community to write and monitor the broad strategic direction of the school.
Independent Public Schools (IPS) are required to have a school council as part of their governance structure. The School Council's main task is the production and (active) monitoring of the school's strategic plan.
What is the difference between a P&C and a School Council and why does a school need both?
The main difference between the School Council and the P&C is the Council deals with strategic matters and the P&C with operational matters, like Tuckshop, Uniforms and fundraising.
For a list of upcoming School Council discussion topics, please refer to the School Council calendar.
