School Councils play a vital role in Victorian government schools and are established and operate under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic), the Education and Training Reform Regulations 2017 (Vic) and a constituting Order.
The School Council is consisted of the School Council President, Executive Director (Principal), Parent Members, Department Employee Members, and Community Members. Parents are encouraged to run for positions on the School Council and/or its Sub-Committees (see below).
The Abbotsford Primary School Council meets 8-10 times a year. Meetings are always open to the public (except for occasional closed agenda items), but only School Council members have the right to vote in motions.
The 2022 School Council meeting schedule can be found in the Calendar of our website and on Compass. Meetings typically run from 6:30pm-8:30pm in a hybrid mode (APS Staff Room and Webex.) Please note that occassionally meeting dates may change at short notice, in which case only School Council members will be advised.
Please refer to the 2022 School Council Members page for detailed bios and each member.
The School Council welcomes feedback and suggestions from parents, carers and community members. The School Council can be reached via email, which is monitored by the Vice President.
