School Council Parent Nominations ​​Pullenvale School Council – Calling for 2 Parent Candidates to join the School Council (this is not the P&C Committee)

 

An opportunity exists for two existing school parents to become part of the School Council overseeing the strategic direction of Pullenvale School, monitoring its implementation and approving relevant plans and policies to achieve the best learning outcomes for the school’s students.

 

Background

In late 2015, Pullenvale SS opted for and was granted Independent Public School (IPS) status by the Department. This means that our school is enabled to use local autonomy in a number of key areas including staffing and financial flexibility, innovative curriculum implementation and teaching practices, enhanced local governance and improved local partnerships with community and industry.  Accordingly, while IPS means not having to follow a number of operational procedures, we must still comply with Departmental policies, directives and legislation.  All of this is with a view to achieving the best learning outcomes for the school’s students.

 

In late 2015, an election was called for the inaugural School Council members following endorsement by the staff and P&C at the time and the first meeting was held in Term 4, 2015 to establish the Council and the School Council Constitution. It is important to understand here that the School Council has a different role and function and membership from the P&C Committee and operates independently of the P&C Committee. The P&C President sits on the School Council to ensure adequate representation and alignment of the two bodies.

 

Role and Details of the School Council

We would like to advise that we are now calling for nominations for 2 x parent members to join the School Council.  Please read through the linked factsheet, which provides details about the function and makeup of the School Council.

The School Council is required to consist of equal numbers of staff and parents. We also have the capacity as a School Council to then appoint a further staff and parent representatives if required.

The time commitment is 1 meeting per term (i.e. 4 per year) for approximately 1.5 to 2 hours per meeting (i.e. total of 6-8 hours per year).

What you need to do next to Nominate and be Appointed:

Nominations need to be submitted to the Returning Officer (please download this nomination form), by 3pm Monday 22 October 2018 (either via  email ssyme11@eq.edu.au or via our red administrative letter box outside the office.

Nominees are encouraged to submit a profile to the Principal ssyme11@eq.edu.au as part of their nominations indicating the reasons for election to the PSS Council, including a photo. No more than 200 words by no later than Wednesday 24 October 2018.

The elections will then be held for parent representatives between 8.15am-8.45am and 2.45pm-3pm between Monday 5 November - Friday 9 November. This will be held at the tuckshop/on the deck.

If you are unable to attend the election at that time, but would like to vote, please request a voting form from the school office and return it in a sealed envelope addressed:- ‘Returning Officer, School Council Election’ prior to 2pm Friday 2 November 2018. Our returning officer for this election will be Fred Hardman, past principal Pullenvale SS.
