All Government schools in Victoria have a School Council. They are legally constituted bodies that are given powers to set the key directions of the school within centrally provided guidelines. All School Council decision-making takes place within a framework of legislated powers, Ministerial Orders, directions, guidelines and Department of Education and Training (DET) policy.
School Councils assist with the efficient governance of a school. They ensure the best interests of all students are primary, enhance the educational opportunities for students and ensure compliance with relevant legislation and regulations.
At Dingley Primary School our School Council is made up of parents, teachers and the Principal. Positions on School Council are held for two years. The term of half the members expires each year, creating vacancies for the annual school council elections which are generally held in February each year.
School Council meetings are open to members of the school community. Meetings are held monthly on Tuesday evenings in the Staff Room. School Council welcomes your feedback and suggestions. To contact school council either approach one of the school councillors directly or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org attention: School Council
Our Parents’ Club is a team of committed parents and friends who get together to help make our school the best it can be.
Our aims are to continue building our school community to ensure each student at Dingley Primary enjoys learning while accomplishing their full potential. Part of our role is to assist in the important task of raising funds to help all of our students utilise the best possible resources to achieve this.
Other roles include encouraging and supporting community values such as organising Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gifts, welcoming new families to our community, Year 6 graduation celebrations, and generally being a liaison between parents and the school for many queries.
Whether you are able to help in a “hands on” role, or merely wish to attend meetings to garner information about your child’s school we welcome any family member to join.
