School Council and Parent Reps

 

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 DEECD, Parents and Community Representatives. School council must meet at least 8 times each year and once per term. At Aberfeldie Primary 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.

Parent Reps

Aberfeldie Primary School is very fortunate in having a committed, vibrant school community. This has been demonstrated through a number of activities – working bees, family picnics and fundraising events.

One way for parents to get involved with the school is by being a designated Classroom Parent Representative. The focus of the Classroom Parent Representative is to build on our community spirit and strengthen our network of activities and communication.

The role of the Parent Representative includes:

  • Being an initial, welcoming contact for families
  • Informing parents about the ways they may get involved with the school
  • Supporting fund-raising activities by inviting parents to participate, drawing up rosters etc
  • Initiating informal social gatherings for the class parents
