School Council

 

The Westgarth Primary School Council is a group of eight parents, five Department of Education and Training employees (including the principal) and two co-opted members, including representation of the Parents and Friends Association.


The Council:

  • Develops the school's strategic plan and annual implementation plan.
  • Determines the school's general educational policy.
  • Approves and monitors the school's budget.
  • Supervises the management and maintenance of buildings and grounds.
  • Establishes our structure for consulting parents on decisions.
  • Reports annually to the Minister of Education and the school community through the Annual Report.Generally stimulates interest in the school.

 

The Council usually meets on the third Wednesday of the month at 7:00pm in the school staff room. Parents are welcome to attend school council meetings. If you would like to attend, please contact the office so that we can arrange for a school representative to welcome you to the meeting.
