School Council

The Colac Primary School Council is an active body of parents and teachers seeking to improve the school in all aspects.

Your participation in council activities is encouraged and Council members are always ready to consider your suggestions.

School Council is involved in policy formulation, the adoption of curriculum and financial planning.  Council sponsored working bees provide the opportunity for you to actively assist in improving school grounds and to socialise with other parents.

We hope you will take the opportunity to enhance your child’s education by participating in all facets of school activities.

Elections for half of the school council members are held in March of each year.  Think about standing for election or participating in the Parents’ Club, which is open to both mums and dads.
