SCHOOL COUNCIL

The Council of Heyfield Primary School comprises representatives of parents, teachers and community co-opted members.

The major responsibility of the School Council is that of deciding the educational policy of this school. School Councillors, the wider parent community and teachers share a common responsibility for the education of the children. School Council is accountable for school evaluation, school finances, the maintenance of school grounds and buildings as well as the general oversight of the working of the school.

School Council elections are held in Term 1 every year. Councillors serve a two year term of office with half retiring each year. Parents, new and old are invited to nominate for positions on School Council and/or to attend meetings.
