School Governing Council


Governing councils are bodies that govern a school or preschool. Governing councils work with the site leader (principal or director) to help set and monitor the direction of a site. A governing council meets regularly to talk about the direction for the site. The timing of meetings can be different for each site, but it’s no less than twice a term. Meetings are a big part of being on a governing council, but it’s not only that. 

In your role on the council, you might; be on an interview panel to select the site’s principal or director, need to deal with media in response to an event or a good news story be an employing authority of out of school hours care (OSHC) or canteen staff. We as a site are always looking for Governing Councils members, if you would like a voice into the operations of AEEC we would love to have you join, please contact the office for more information.

The Adelaide East Education Centre AGM is held every March, during which time new Council Members are elected.
