Our School - School Council

Teesdale Primary School - School Council

The School Council, comprising of elected parents, teachers, community members and the Principal, play an important part in setting the strategic direction for many aspects of the school's activities such as curriculum, policy development, finance, community engagement and student wellbeing.  The School Council actively monitors progress against the objectives and targets in the Strategic Plan to ensure objectives are met.

Communication and engagement are key ingredients to a successful school experience.  School Council is keen to hear from and take into account the views of the broader Teesdale school community to help shape the future success of Tesdale.  Feedback, suggestions and enquiries from the community are welcome by contacting the school on 03 5281 5218, writing to the School Council by letter, or emailing the school.
