All School Councils in Victoria operate under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006. Each School Council is established by an Order of the Minister for Education, which specifies the Council’s membership, size and configuration, its objectives, powers, functions and accountabilities and the role of its executive officer who is the principal. The School Council has particular functions in setting and monitoring the school’s direction.
School Councils have three main responsibilities:
Other key functions of School Councils include:
Our sub-committees and working parties assist Council to complete the work that needs to be done. They report regularly at School Council, provide assistance and make recommendations to school council.
All members of the community are welcome to attend sub-committee meetings. By attending these meetings, the community can actively participate in supporting the continued growth of Moonee Ponds West Primary School.

Junior School Council (JSC)
The JSC has two representatives from each classroom in the school. They are voted by their classmates. It is a vital component of our school's student voice.
The group meet on a fortnightly basis to discuss varying topics.
These may include: feedback on programs, policy development, fundraising etc. Each class's representatives report back to their classroom after each meeting.
Minutes from the JSC are presented as part of the School Council's meeting.
