Students on School Council Resources

After a 2017 campaign across the state and a surprise announcement at the 2017 Recognition Awards, a Ministerial Order was signed in early 2018 creating a student category on School Councils in all Government schools!


What does this mean?

At every Government school in Victoria, students now have a voice in overseeing their school environment, expenditure and culture! School Councils play a big part in working with school leadership to establish the broad direction of the school as well as the practical details like school dress code, school maintenance and school budget.


Having students in on these meetings means that the people affected by these decisions get a say in how they’re made!
