School Council

All government schools in Victoria have school councils. They are legally formed bodies that are given powers to set the key directions of a school. In the performance of their role, school councils are able to directly influence the quality of education that the school provides for its students. (Read more)

Within guidelines provided by the D.E.E.C.D, a school council has responsibilities for developing such things as:

The school strategic plan which sets out the main goals and priorities of the school for three years
The annual implementation plan which operationalises the strategic plan
The school's budget which shares out the available resources to make sure that the plans of the strategic plan are carried out
The general educational policy of the school
The physical appearance and maintenance of the school's buildings and grounds
The student code of conduct which provides a safe and orderly environment for learning
an annual report on the school's achievements.

At Tinternvale Primary School we have the following Sub-Committees:

  • Education
  • Parents & Friends 
  • Buildings & Grounds 

These committees are run by a Convenor (member of school council) and all parents are invited to attend. Each committee plays a vital role in the activities, maintenance, and fundraising efforts throughout the year.

Meetings are once a month. If you are interested in joining a committee, please see the office staff, or any member of school council for more information.
