Le Page Primary School Council consists of 9 Councillors – 6 Parents and 3 DET Employees (2 Staff, plus the Principal). In line with Department of Education and Training Policy, the clear majority of members are Parents. Half the Council is elected each year and Councillors serve 2-year terms. The School Council determines School Policy within Departmental Guidelines and oversees the School Budget. We meet 8 times per year (twice per term).
Nominations and elections for Council are completed by the end of Term 1 each year. Being on School Council is a great way to contribute to the School for the benefit of all students and their families.
