School Council Election Update


Dear Families,

This year we will NOT require a School Council election.

The number of nominations is equal to the number of vacancies in both membership categories, therefore I declare elected those who have nominated and that a ballot will not be held for either the Parent or School employee membership categories.

We welcome:
Lewis Brown, Emma Gierschick and Samantha Paxton to the Edithvale Primary School Council for the first time and we welcome back Laura Moore

They join current parent category members Aileen Dyce, Nat Firth, Andrew Murray and Thomas Beilken.

I wish to publicly acknowledge and thank Nikki Brown, Mark Eddey and Mike Smits for their tireless work and efforts to help create a great school environment and strong culture.

Our first meeting of the year will be on Tuesday March 8 and if you are eager to join our Sub-Committees, (Fundraising, Events, Buildings and Grounds and Community Connection) please let us know.

It is a really exciting time and we’re eager to build connection within Year levels and across the school. After a long and disruptive 2 years, our proactive and forward thinking members are keen to ensure all families are connected to our great school and are able to keep abreast of the myriad of events and activities that are planned throughout the year.

To assist us with this we are aiming to have volunteers from each Class/Year level to be a conduit between school and other families within each class. We envisage the role one that helps connect like minded families through social events, conversation and help us promote and support our fundraising events.

If this sounds like something you’d like to be part of and take the journey with us, please contact either Nat Firth (School Council President) at or James Whitla (Principal) at school and together we can bring this plan to life.

James Whitla
