All parents of students attending Armadale Primary School are eligible to nominate. It is important that our Council is representative of our school community and that parents generally become familiar with and involved in the decision making processes of the school.

All meetings are open and parents are encouraged to attend as observers. If parents wish to raise issues on policy matters at Council, they are requested to see either the Principal or School Council President.

Much of Council’s important business is carried out by the following sub-committees:

  • Facilities - meets on Friday mornings
  • Education and Policy - meets on Thursday mornings
  • Finance - meets on Tuesday mornings
  • OOSHC - meets on Monday mornings

Each subcommittee discusses their respective agenda items and then make recommendations for our School Council to consider.

Whilst each of these committees has a core membership, the meetings are open to any school parents who would like to attend - please feel very welcome to come along and join in these meetings. We value parental input into the directions that aim to make our school even better. Meeting dates and main agenda items are published in the school newsletter.
