School Council is a vital organisation, ensuring Heathmont College is governed responsibly for the current as well as future generations of students.
In 2016-2017 the School Council committee is:
School Council President – Brian Niven
Executive Officer – Johanna Walker (Principal)
There are three possible categories of membership:
The term of office for members is two years. Half the members must retire each year and this creates vacancies for the annual school council elections.
We meet as a Council once a month, usually at 7.30pm on the fourth Tuesday of each month.
There are four Parent positions.
Parents on school councils provide important viewpoints and have valuable skills that can help shape the direction of the school.
Those parents who become active on a school council often find their involvement satisfying in itself and may also find that their children feel a greater sense of belonging.
In February each year nomination papers are available from the General Office for School Council.
