School Council

Message from the DPS school council

 

On behalf of all members of the School Council at Derrimut Primary School, I extend a warm welcome to all the new families.

 

The School Council is an elected body of staff and parents that oversee the policy and financial decisions for the school.  The day-to-day running of the school is left to the experts, the Principal and staff.

 

Elections are held for School Council in February/March each year.  Each year the School Council will elect parents and teachers for a two-year period, with half the School Council being replaced each year.

 

School Council meetings are open to the whole school community and visitors, and their questions are welcome.  Meeting times are advertised well in advance in the school newsletter.  If you would like an item placed on the agenda this can be done by contacting the Executive Officer (the Principal) or the School Council president.  The names of the members of School Council are published in the Newsletter during Term 1. 

 

We hope that families joining the school, will soon feel part of this community.  If you have time, there are many ways that you can help either through the School Council or in the classroom.

 

Finally, we wish you many happy and rewarding years as members of this school community.

 

Regards,

 

Derrimut PS School Council
