Governing Council

Nuriootpa High School Governing Council is comprised of elected parents, student representatives, the Principal and staff members elected by the staff.

The Governing Council ensures that the views of all sections of the parent community are taken into account when setting directions for the school. Sub-committees have been established to focus on specific areas of the Governing Council’s work. Parents do not have to be a member of the Governing Council to volunteer to be on a sub-committee.

These are:

  • Assets (grounds and facilities)
  • Canteen
  • Finance
  • Fundraising
  • Uniform
  • Wine Centre

  • The Governing Council is committed to engaging with the broader parent community to share information, encourage discussion and collect feedback.

    The Governing Council is a signatory on the schools Learning Plan, sets the schools fees (material and services charges) and approves the school budget. The Council also overseas the management of the canteen and the school clothing shop.

    Parents are elected to the Governing Council at a general meeting held in February of each year. Governing Council meets twice a term on a Thursday starting at 7.00pm. Dates for the meetings are provided in the school newsletter or you can contact the front office for details of the next meeting.
