Your 2020 School Council

Our principal works closely with parents, staff and students to develop recommendations and strategies to achieve the broad site directions that are jointly set with the council.

When working together at Gilles Street Primary School we respect and follow our agreed upon Essential Understandings by:

  • Always assuming positive intent
  • Respecting and valuing other people's ideas (address the issue not the person)
  • Showing courtesy and respecting confidentiality at all times
  • Listening actively and interacting in discussions without being interrupted
  • Structuring time and climate to allow equitable opportunities for thinking and constructive discussion
