School council is the legally formed body that is given powers to set the key directions of a school. It is the major governing body of the school that, within DET guidelines, decides the future directions for the school and oversees the school’s operation.
At Mentone Park we have an active and enthusiastic School Council that meets regularly on Monday nights. All Councillors sit on sub-committees that consider issues around educational policy, fundraising and grounds and facilities.
The objectives of the School Council include:
- Assist in the efficient governance of the school
- Ensure students’ best interests are primary
- Enhance the educational opportunities for students
- Ensure compliance with relevant legislation and regulations
