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.

After School Care Program
Kingston Council is proud to partner with Le Page Primary school to offer a fun and exciting After School Program that operates each day of the school term (excluding public holidays) in a supervised, relaxed, safe and fun environment. Each program has a dedicated Bachelor Qualified Educator along with our highly qualified and experienced Educator team. Sessions offer a mix of structured and unstructured indoor and outdoor games, art, craft, cooking and special events.
Children are provided with a delicious and nutritious afternoon tea during the After School Program. To make After School Care even more fun incursions and special visitors are a regular feature, past special incursions have included Bunnings workshops, Art Workshops and Specialised sporting programs to name a few.
