School Council

Hamlyn Banks Primary School Council is the governing body of the school. It determines appropriate educational policies within Department of Education and Training guidelines which will ensure that the aims of the school are achieved. School Council is also responsible for the school’s monies and resources.


The composition of the Hamlyn Banks Primary School Council is:

  • 9 elected Non- DEECD parents
  • 5 DEECD employees including the Principal
  • 1 co-opted member of the school community having a special interest in the school.

Elected members of the School Council have a two year term with half retiring annually on the 31st March.  Occasionally a School Councillor retires early and a one year position may be created. This will be specified on the nomination form at election time. Elections are conducted according to the Education Regulation.

School Council meets on eight occasions per year.

Our school Finance School Council Subcommittee meets monthly to review the school’s financial position and finance reports that are then presented and ratified at School Council meetings.
