Foster Primary School Council 2017
School Council meetings are held on the 1st Wednesday of each month, execpt during school holidays.
Meetings begin at 6.30pm and are held in the staff room. Extraordinary meetings may be held at other times.
|A School Council is the body which handles all official business relating to the school.
It is, together with the Principal,responsible for maintenance of school grounds, buildings and
equipment, and for spending all funds raised by parents and those provided in the form of grants
School Council membership is made up of parent representatives, DET representatives and,
when necessary, coopted members to represent wider community interests or particular
expertise. The Principal is the Executive Officer.
Elections are held at the end of March with half of the parent members and half of the DET
members retiring each year.
All activities of the School Council are aimed at fostering increased communication between the
parents, staff and School Council at Foster. The Council, through the powers and duties bestowed
upon it, is able to:
*provide a direct link in communicating your views and ideas to the Department of Education and Training (DET).
*bring improvements which you see as desirable to the notice of the school and the Department.
*carry out improvements to the educational and physical environment at Foster so that our children’s
opportunities for complete and stimulating education can be maximised.
The success of your School Council’s activities depends entirely on the support which you give the
collective ventures which it undertakes. The more input to the school’s activities that parents make,
the more confident the Council can be that it is truly representative of the school
If you have any enquires regarding Council activities, or any views or ideas which you would like
Council to consider, please contact the President or the Principal, or approach a Council member.
