Governing Council

We would like to introduce the Governing Council of Alberton Primary School. The council engages with families, supports school leadership and works in the best interests of the children of the school.

 

Governing Council works with the principal, meeting regularly to set and monitor the direction of the school. Our Governing Council meets twice per term. While meetings are not open for others to attend, feedback and input are always invited. The dates of these meetings are available on request via the email address below.

 

As well as regular meetings, Governing Council nominates one of its members to be part of the selection panel for recruitment of the Principal, has oversight of OSHC and the Canteen, provides a focus and a forum for the involvement of families and ensure that the cultural and social diversity of the community is considered.

Governing Council is made up of 10 parents elected at the Annual General Meeting, the Principal, and a staff representative. Governing Council parent members are elected as individuals, rather than as representatives of particular groups or interests within the community. There are also positions for three people nominated by an Aboriginal parent group and Governing Council may co-opt up to two community members.

Should you wish to get in touch with the council at any stage, you may email: albertongoverningcouncil@gmail.com.

We acknowledge this land where we play and work is the traditional lands of the Kaurna people and we respect their spiritual relationship with their country; the land, the creatures, the plants and waterways. We also acknowledge the Kaurna people as the custodians of the Adelaide region and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.  We respect their Elders past, present and future.
