School Council

A School Council governs each Victorian state school.  School Councils are corporate bodies (legal bodies) constituted under the Education Act, and are responsible for setting the overall direction of the school.

The Tate St PS School Council meets twice per term on the school grounds. We currently have 8 parent category members, 4 department category members and 1 co-opted community member.


The objectives of the School Council are set out in the school council’s constituting Order and section 2.3.4 of the Education and Training Reform Act and are to:

  • assist in the efficient governance of the school

  • ensure that its decisions affecting students of the school are made having regard, as a primary consideration, to the best interest of the students

  • enhance the educational opportunities of students at the school

  • ensure the school and the council complies with any requirements of the Education and Training Reform Act, the Education and Training Reform Regulations, a Ministerial Order or a direction, guideline or policy issued under the Education and Training Reform Act​
