The Lakes South Morang College - Issue 3 2023

The Lakes South Morang College Newsletter SCHOOL COUNCIL REPORT

Hello all,

A very (belated) warm welcome to all our new families and returning families to The Lakes in 2023. Hope everyone has settled in OK – amazingly we are already halfway through Term 1! For our new families, School Councils play an important part in Victorian schools and is made up of parent representatives, teacher representatives, students and the Leadership Team. We are essentially the number one, leading parental/carer voice of the school community and act as that conduit regarding school issues between the parent/carer community and the school. Council meets twice per term on a Tuesday and visitors and observers are always welcome!

Our February meeting was our last meeting for the 2022/23 Council term. At this meeting we:

• Discussed the placement and need of the school bus stopping at the Primary Campus;

• Discussed our school ’ s 2022 VCE results and student 2023 pathways;

• Endorsed 2023 proposed student free days and a hybrid model of delivering parent/ carer teacher interviews; and

Reviewed the inaugural College Awards Night held last December.

Also stay tuned for an exciting end of year fundraiser scheduled for later in the year!

Our next meeting will be the AGM on March 28, where the results of the recent call for nominations will be announced and the new 2023/24 Council will be formed. A huge shout out to this term ’ s parent/carer and staff members and observers for their time, dedication and enthusiasm, it has been a privilege to lead an aligned group, whose hearts are in the right place. It has certainly been a team effort and everyone has added value with varying perspectives and backgrounds.

As always, if you have any issues, ideas, questions that you would like raised at our next Council meeting, or any other support, we are more than happy to hear from families so please feel free to send me an email to
