School Council

As an Independent Public School Corinda State High School has both a School Council and a P&C Association. Both groups support the school in different ways but operate separately.


The role of the School Council is to monitor and inform the school’s strategic direction in a way that achieves the best learning outcomes for their students by:
  • Monitoring the school’s strategic direction
  • Approving plans and policies of the school of a strategic nature, and other documents affecting strategic matters, including the annual estimate of revenue and expenditure for the school
  • Monitoring the implementation of the plans, policies and other documents mentioned above
  • Advising the school’s principal about strategic matters.


The School Council must perform its functions in a way that achieves the best learning outcomes for the school’s students.  
The School Council may not:
  • Interfere with management by the school’s principal of day-to-day operations of the school and its curriculum; or
  • Make operational decisions about the use of teaching or learning resources at the school; or
  • Make decisions about the individual teaching style used, or to be used, at the school; or
  • Make a decision that is contrary to law or a written policy of the department; or
  • Have control of funds; or
  • Enter into contracts; or
  • Acquire, hold, dispose of or deal with property; or
  • Sue or be sued.
