School Councils play a key role in Victorian government schools. 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.
School Council members are nominated and elected by parents and teachers to be the official governing body of the school at the Annual General Meeting (usually held in March). Members are elected for a two year term and at MPS comprise of eight parent representatives, four DET representatives and one community representative.
The Principal acts as Executive Officer and the President must be a parent. To share the responsibility of School Council, tasks are allocated through a Sub-Committee structure.
The Sub-Committees are: Education and Policy; Finance; Grants; Grounds and Building; MASK and OHS. Parents not elected to School Council can also participate in the sub-committees.
For further information about School Council please see the Principal.
