School Council Membership and Elections

School councils are made up of parents, staff, community members and the principal.

Become a school councillor

To be a school councillor, you must have an interest in the school and be able to work cooperatively with others to shape the school’s future.

If you’re a parent, guardian or staff member, you must nominate yourself to be a school councillor and then be elected through a vote. Elections are held in February or March each year.

Parents and guardians of students enrolled at the school can vote on which nominated parents become school council members.

School staff can vote on which nominated staff become school council members.

Community members are chosen by the school council.

Parent Class Reps

Building relationships throughout the school community

Parkhill Class Reps act as a liaison between parents and class teachers. They help teachers coordinate parent assistance and they also help parents of the children in their class/year level to get to know each other by arranging social activities (e.g. family picnics and parent get-togethers, etc).

Class Reps also act as a liaise between class groups and other school groups, like the Parent and Friends Association, helping to keep parents informed about social gatherings, fundraising activities, and school community events.

Class Reps, and other classroom helpers, are respectful of everyone’s privacy maintaining the confidentiality of teachers, students, and parents at all times.

If you would like more information about Class Reps, email parkhill.ps@education.vic.gov.au or contact the Parkhill Primary School Office.
