At Kosciuszko Street Primary School, our School Council plays a crucial role in the effective and efficient operation of our school. Comprising both dedicated teachers and committed parents, the School Council works collaboratively to design and implement educational policies that shape our school's direction.
The primary responsibility of the School Council is to oversee the smooth running of the school, ensuring that the needs of our students, staff, and broader school community are met. This includes making decisions on key matters such as school finances, facilities management, and strategic planning.
Our School Council members are elected each year, reflecting the shared governance model mandated by the Victorian Government for government schools. This model recognises the importance of involving both educators and parents in shaping educational policies. We strongly encourage parents to consider nominating themselves for School Council positions, as their involvement is essential for representing the interests and perspectives of our diverse parent community.
By actively participating in the School Council, parents have the opportunity to contribute their valuable insights, experiences, and ideas. They can actively engage in discussions and decisions that directly impact their child's educational experience, ensuring a collaborative approach to school governance.
Furthermore, being a member of the School Council allows parents to have a deeper understanding of the educational policies and practices at Kosciuszko Street Primary School. It provides a platform for them to have a direct impact on shaping the school's vision, goals, and priorities.
The School Council meetings are held monthly, providing a forum for open dialogue, idea sharing, and decision-making. These meetings serve as a space for all members to contribute, learn, and actively participate in the ongoing development and improvement of our school.
We value the contributions of our School Council members and recognize their dedication to the betterment of our school community. Together, we strive to create a nurturing and engaging learning environment that empowers our students to reach their full potential.
The School Council is supported by four sub-committees:
