School Council

The School Council is the group of people who assist in governing the school. The role of School Council is one of setting the long term future for the school and plays an important role in the school’s accountability and improvement processes.

The Aberfeldie School Council consists of individuals from the Department of Education and Training (DET), Parents and Community Representatives. School Council must meet at least 8 times each year and once per term. Aberfeldie’s School Council generally meets once a month.

The Aberfeldie Primary School Council operates through a number of sub-committees. Sub-committees provide advice and make recommendations to the School Council, reporting regularly at school council meetings. Sub-committees are open to all Aberfeldie Community Representatives and therefore provide opportunities to get involved. Sub-committees generally meet every month.
