All government schools in Victoria have a school council. They are legally formed bodies that are given powers to set the key directions of a school within centrally provided guidelines. In doing this, a school council is able to directly influence the quality of education that the school provides for its students. The term of office for all members is two years. Half the members must retire each year, creating vacancies for the annual school council elections.
Broadford Primary School School Council meets 8 times over the school year. Elections are held in March every year with parent members elected for 2 years. School Council are actively involved in reviewing and developing school policies, such as the Student Engagement Policy and Uniform Policy. All parents are encouraged to become active members when vacancies arise.
Broadford Primary School has a dedicated group of Council members who meet monthly to discuss programs, budgets, policies, camps and excursions. Council members are elected for two years.
