Meet the School Council

Our School Council meets twice per term and comprises 6 parents and 2 DET staff who together:

  • establish the broad direction and vision for the school
  • develop, review and update the policies of the school
  • regulate and facilitate the after-hours school care
  • exercise general oversight of the buildings and grounds ensuring they are kept in good order and condition
  • ensure all money coming into the hands of the council is properly expended
  • ensure they take account of the views expressed by the school community for the purpose of making decisions in the best interests of the school and our students
  • ensure the annual report and school’s strategic plan is published and available to the school community
  • stimulate interest in the school in the wider community
  • support the work of the Finance sub-committee as well as our Parents & Friends Association

A word from the President:

My name is Kristy Vasils and I am the school council president. I have been on the committee for the last several years, first joining because I wanted to make a difference around the school and then staying on as I have enjoyed my time on the committee. I have 3 children at the school in grades 5, 3 and 1 this year and currently have a 3-month-old at home. I am passionate about community and about the school community and I hope to continue this by providing opportunity for everyone to come together and get to know each other at every chance we get.

The school currently provides many opportunities for our children not just educationally and physically but now emotionally. Emotional well being is a big focus now with many get resources at our student’s fingertips including wellbeing staff, counsellors and a psychologist. This is also available to extend to families as well. Currently Candice and Lauren, two members of our Wellbeing Team, are giving a Tuning into Children course, run every second Monday, usually after assembly this term, however will be held at 9:10am this week as assembly has been moved to the afternoon. I have attended this course last week and will be back there again on Monday. This is an enormously great resource whether you are struggling with tweens or younger children or just even want a better understanding of your children. It is confidential and supportive environment so please feel free to come to next Monday’s session.

Don’t forget that PFA is a great way to get involved in the school to make a difference. The PFA are always looking for more members so please reach out if you would like to be involved. We do have the Bunnings BBQ on next month which is just one of the activities the PFA organizes, but it is also our largest contributor so please get involved and help out on this day. I personally have always enjoyed my time there and it is a great way to get to know other parents.

Finally, I would like to say I’m always around and up for a chat if you have any concerns at all please feel free to come up to me or get in contact to pass on any concerns you may have.

Kind regards

Kristy Vasils
