School Council Sub-Committee Structure

Sub Committees


The work of School Council is undertaken by the subcommittee meetings which occur regularly in the calendar life of the school. Parent volunteers work within the subcommittee structure to support the school and the learning experience of all children. The subcommittees produce minutes about the work they are engaged with in their particular area of school operations. These are reported to School Council. The subcommittee also give a report about their achievements at the Annual General Meeting.

 

Finance Committee


This committee oversees the management of school finances and ensures there is good governance and responsible administration of the financial resources of the school. This committee organises the operational budget of the school, monitors revenue and expenditure and manages the resources available via government funding, parent contributions, grants, fundraising and school operations such as OSHC and Sprout.

 

Fundraising Committee

 

The fundraising group support the life of the school by organising fundraising and social events. Fundraising supports the ongoing work of improving the school experience of children and families through fundraising activities. The team also provides the school community with opportunities to meet socially and enjoy the company of other parents.

 

Buildings and Grounds Committee


This group of volunteers manages maintenance of buildings and grounds works. It manages a prioritised jobs list of works and projects aimed at maintaining a safe, enjoyable and pleasing environment for children and families. The organisation of working bees is a major function along with coordinating the assistance of volunteers in support of garden work including a mowing roster and maintenance and repair works.


Playground Committee


This group of volunteers works closely with Buildings and Grounds but with a focus on the redevelopment of the school playground areas and equipment. This includes refurbishing existing areas and equipment and the development of plans for future building and installation of new playground areas and equipment.

 


Student Representative Council


SRC is the most important of our School Council subcommittees. Student representatives from each year group are elected by their peers to meet and discuss issues and ideas relevant to the children’s life at school. Through the SRC meetings and their reports to School Council, children have input into the daily organisation and planning for our school community and environment.

 

Parents wanting to be involved in any of these School Council subcommittees can contact the Principal via the office for further information. Willing workers and smiling faces always welcome!
