Parents - School Council

South Yarra Primary School Council

The South Yarra Primary School Council operates effectively using a committee structure. We meet on a monthly basis. In addition to the monthly School Council Meeting there are 3 Sub-Committees:

  • Education
  • Finance
  • Grounds and Buildings

Each of these Committees consists of parents and teachers. Parents do not have to be a member of the School Council to be a member of one of these Committees. The Sub-Committees meet once a month prior to the School Council meeting so they can report on outcomes at that meeting.

In addition South Yarra Primary School have a PFA that also reports to the School Council. The PFA perform a vitally important role of raising funds for the School. All members of the school community are encouraged to be involved with our school and wider community.
