School Strategic Plan
Ormond School Council plays a key role in the school. Its helps develop a vision for the school in collaboration with all members of the school community and is actively involved in the development and endorsement of the School Strategic Plan.
Our School Council consists of 14 representatives including the school principal.There are 8 elected parent members and 4 DET employees, and one Parents & Friends liaison nominee.
Much of the School Council’s work is organised through the four active sub-committees:
- Finance & Trading Operations
- Facilities, Environment & Major Projects
- Education & Policy
- Parents & Friends
The School Council and its sub-committees worked enthusiastically to develop key strategies and action plans for each group to focus on.When developing these plans the following guiding principles are adhered to:
- ‘It’s all about the children’
- The overarching goal for School Council is about improving student achievement for all students – not some, but all
- Every decision or action must be guided by the health & welfare needs of the students
