Governing Council

Aldgate Primary School Governing Council is committed to providing a positive, proactive voice on behalf of the school community.

Governing Councils work with site leaders to help set and monitor the direction of the school. The governing council meets twice a term and topics might include:

  • the academic achievement of the students,
  • the Site Improvement Plan, (that is what the school will be
         focussing on improving on the current year)
  • fundraising
  • OSHC
  • facilities and policies

Our role is to:

  • set the broad direction of the school after considering student,
         parent, staff and community input
  • develop policies which match the school’s vision
  • monitor the school budget

Governing Council is comprised of 10 elected members of the school community, plus the principal and a staff representative. Meetings are held twice per term and our AGM is held every February. Elected members serve for two-year terms. All members of the school community are welcome to attend Governing Council meetings, however only elected members have voting rights.

Governing Council sub-committees oversee five key areas:

  • Finance
  • School development (including policies)
  • Out of School Hours Care
  • Parent Network

Again, members of the school community are welcome to attend sub-committee meetings. Major issues to be discussed (everything from which trees to plant in the school grounds to the school’s uniform policy) are regularly promoted in the school newsletter.

Members of the Governing Council for 2021 are:

Chairperson: Mark Osterstock
Treasurer: Robyn Faber
Secretary: Karolina van der Linden
Robbie Brocklebank
Jarrod Carter
Kasey Evans
Hope Grossman
Vicki Mott
Marg Whittle
