Hastings Primary School’s School Council plays a key role in the school.
Our School Council consists of 12 elected members (8 parent and 4 Department of Education and Early Childhood – DEECD – representatives) and the school principal. We also have the option for 2 community members to join School Council each year. The School Council meets at least twice per term, with a minimum of eight meetings per year. Currently the meeting schedule is the 1st Tuesday of each month, unless affected by school holidays, at 7pm in the Administration building.
The School Council works closely with the staff and school community to develop the vision, the priorities and goals for the school through the School Strategic Plan. The current School Strategic Plan is for 2012 – 2015, and can be viewed in the link below.
The overarching goal for the School Council is about improving student achievement and well being for all students.
Much of the School Council’s work is organised through the two active sub-committees:
- Facilities, Environment and Major Projects
- Finance and Education and Policy
The School Council and its sub-committees work enthusiastically to develop key strategies and action plans to focus on.
