Council

Read our Key Policy documents here.

The Elwood College Council consists of the principal, four teacher representatives, six elected parent representatives and co-opted community members.

All councillors, other than the principal, serve two-year terms on a split system, with one half of council commencing in one year and the other half the following year. School council elections for parent representatives are held in February each year.

The council meets twice every term at 6:15pm on a Tuesday. Sub-committee meetings are generally held a fortnight prior to the main council meeting each month and start from 6:00pm onwards.

The main role of the Parent Group is to connect the parents/carers within the school community at Elwood College. The group assists to facilitate various school events throughout the year, including the school production, student talent night and parent get togethers, as well as fund raising at the regular monthly Elwood Farmers Market held at the college.
