School Councils play an important role in Victorian schools.
A well-informed and effective School Council can strengthen and positively impact a school in many ways. Newtown values the input from our School Council members and appreciate the parent voice and perspective that is shared at each of our meetings.
If you would like to be involved in Newtown Primary School’s School Council, nominations are generally open in February each year. School Council members usually hold their positions for terms of two years.
There are approximately 8 School Council meetings each year plus a Public Reporting Meeting, at which all members of the school community are invited to attend.
Refer to the school newsletter and Compass for detailed information about joining School Council at the beginning of each school year.
