School Council

The role of the School Council is to serve the interests of Melton Specialist School students and staff and to promote the school in the wider community.

School Council

  • Is a legally formed body that is given powers to set the key directions of a school,
  • Is the major governing body of the school,
  • Plays an important role in school accountability and improvement processes,
  • Endorses the key school planning, evaluation and reporting documents.

There are four categories of membership – The Principal (Executive Officer), DET Employee (staff) members, Parent members and Community members. School counsellors are elected for a two-year term. Members are unpaid volunteers elected by the school community. Participating as a school council member is a rewarding and challenging experience. The School Council supports the principal to provide the best possible educational outcomes for students.

Our school council has several Sub-Committees which invites parental and community participation. These are Finance, Building and Grounds and Policy and Education.

School Council Meeting Dates:
Meetings are held on the second last Tuesday of each month commencing at 5.00pm. Sub-Committee meetings are held in the lead up to School Council.
