School Council

The aim of the School Council is to foster closer links between Winston Heights Public School and its community, enabling formal school community participation in the planning and governance of the school.

The role of the School Council is to provide a consultative decision-making process for the Principal and the school Executive, relating to policies and goals for the school, according to the needs of the students and the local community. The School Council is made up of parents & carers (four representatives), school staff (Principal and two teaching staff) and a community member. The School Council plays an important role in making sure that the whole community is involved in important decisions made by the school.

Consultative decision-making means that groups in a school community have the opportunity to receive information, engage in discussion, put forward ideas, and have their views considered in making a final decision. This does not mean that a majority vote of any or all identified groups in the school community is required. The Principal, after consideration of the views of the school community, will make decisions that best meet the needs of students attending the school.

Meeting time and terms of reference

The School Council meets twice a term in the third and seventh week of term on a Wednesday evening.
