School Council

What is School Council?

All Parents and Staff at Walter and Gladys Hill are members of the School Council.

The school council advises and consults with the principal on any matter relating to the school.

We are a means for parents to work together with the school to enhance and support student learning.

We meet once a month and all parents are encouraged to attend.  It is a great place to find out what is happening at the school and how to best support your child.
