School Councils play a vital role in Victorian government schools and are established and operate under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic), the Education and Training Reform Regulations 2017 (Vic) and a constituting Order.
The School Council is consisted of the School Council President, Executive Director (Principal), parent members, Department employee members, and a community member. Parents are encouraged to run for positions on the School Council and/or its Sub-Committees (see below).
The Abbotsford Primary School Council meets 8-10 times a year. Meetings are always open to the public (except for occasional closed agenda items), but only School Council members have the right to vote in motions.
The 2021 School Council meeting schedule can be found in the Calendar of our website and on Sentral. Meetings typically run from 6:30pm-8:30pm in the Staff Room. Please note that occassionally meeting dates may change at short notice, in which case only School Council members will be advised.
