Please contact one of the above members at lara.ps@edumail.vic.gov.au marking it to the attention of School Council if you would like to talk about school council matters. 

School councils play a key role in Victorian government schools. Participating as a school council member is a rewarding and challenging experience. The school council supports the principal to provide the best possible educational outcomes for students.

A school council's objectives are described in the Education and Training Reform Act 2006. The objectives are to:
Assist in the efficient governance of the school
Ensure that its decisions affecting students of the school are made having regard, as a primary consideration, to the best interests of the students
Enhance the educational opportunities of the students at the school and
Ensure the school and council  comply with any requirements of the Act, the Regulations, a Ministerial Order, direction, guideline or DEECD policy.
Parents interested in participating in school council re encouraged to meet with the principal and discuss the opportunity. Elections for school councilors take place in February/March each year.
