The School Council is a group that oversees the governance of the school in accordance with the Department of Education’s regulations, playing a key role in our school's accountability and improvement processes. The School Council consists of community members, staff and parents, who all work together with the Principal to prioritise our students' best interests, to enhance the educational opportunities for all our students and to ensure compliance with relevant legislation and regulations.
Becoming a School Council member is a rewarding and challenging experience. Being part of the School Council is a great way to get involved in the school and have a real say in what Paynesville Primary School is doing for our students. If you have a passion for providing our children with the best possible standard of education then please consider putting your hand up. We have a very strong Council who work closely with staff to govern the direction and effectiveness of the school.
Meetings are conducted twice a term on a Wednesday evening.
