the Blackburn Primary School Council plays a key role in our school. Participating as a school council member is a rewarding and challenging experience. The school council supports the principal to provide the best possible educational outcomes for students.
(see Victorian Education Department’s webpage for more information on the role of a School Council).
The School Council meets on at least 8 occasions in a School Year. Meetings are held at Blackburn Primary School at 7:30pm and are usually 1.5hours in duration. When special circumstances dictate, extraordinary meetings are called and advertised.
Visitors are welcome at School Council Meetings and are invited to make arrangements through the School Principal Clayton Sturzaker to visit a meeting if so desired.

Kate T (parent 4A, 6W) – President
