School Council


Stuart Park School Council

Stuart Park Primary School has an active and positive School Council that is elected each year by community members.

Meeting Times

The School Council meets on the third Monday of every month excluding January, July and December.

School Council sub-committees meet once monthly or as necessary and are chaired by a Council member.

Role

The Council is made up of staff, parents and community members. It works together to promote the educational opportunities for the students at our school.

Parent Involvement

Parents are important at Stuart Park Primary School. Parents are encouraged in many different ways to be involved with the education of the students.

At Preschool…

At Preschool, parental involvement strengthens and enhances children’s learning and can be of great assistance to the teacher. Parents are welcome to stay and help with activities.

At the Primary School…

Parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their child's education.

We encourage parents to participate in programs such as reading, computing and fundamental motor skills. If you wish to offer your time then your child's teacher or the office will be only too happy to work with you to find the best fit for your timetable.

The support of our community enriches the programs that we are able to offer to the children.
