Governance and Leadership

Salisbury East High School has a vibrant, effective Governing Council that sees parents, members of our community, students and staff working together to improve the quality of learning. The Governing Council forms a very important function, in that it sets the overall direction and policy of the school.

This year interest in our Governing Council has increased with 16 members (including 11 parent representatives, community and staff representatives) elected to the 2015 Governing Council Committee. This committee has a very important function in setting the overall direction and policy of the school, where members discuss and contribute ideas to our future plans.

The SEHS Governing Council meetings are held twice a term on Tuesdays from 6.30 p.m. – 8.30 p.m. in the staff room. Members of our school community are welcome to attend meetings and contribute ideas to the future direction and strategic planning of our school.

The council also welcomes feedback and ideas from other parents and invites comments to be forwarded to dl.1011.info@schools.sa.edu.au
