School Councils enable greater involvement of the school community and other stakeholders, such as industry, in setting the strategic direction for the school. The functions of a school council are to:
- monitor the school’s strategic direction;
- approve plans and policies of the school of a strategic nature, or other documents affecting strategic matters including the annual estimate of revenue and expenditure for the school;
- monitor the implementation of the plans, policies and other documents mentioned above; and
- advise the school’s principal about strategic matters.
