JOIN SCHOOL COUNCIL

Interested in being a member of the Weeroona College Bendigo School Council?

As the new school year begins, we are looking for a student and parent representatives for our school council.

 

Frequently asked questions.

  • Do I need special experience to be on school council? No! What you need is an interest in our school and the ability to work cooperatively with others to help shape its future.
  • Why is parent membership so important? Parents on councils provide important viewpoints and have valuable skills that can help shape the direction of the school. Parents who become active on a school council find their involvement satisfying in itself and may also find that their children feel a greater sense of belonging.
  • If I am interested, what do I do? Download a nomination form from our school website click here for parents or click here for students or collect a copy from our general office, complete and return to the school by Friday 10 February 2018.
