Gap State High School is an Independent Public School. We are a member of a
group of Government schools which will be administrated by a School Council.
The School Council monitors the school's strategic
direction, which includes:
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 plans, policies and other documents
advising the school's Principal about strategic matters
The Council must have regard to the documents
listed in Schedule 1 of the School Council Constitution in performing its
the TGSHS School Council Constitution (PDF 75KB).
The Council must perform its functions in a way
that achieves the best learning outcomes for the school's students.
The Council may only perform its functions in
relation to the school for which it is established. The Council is not part of
the Department of Education and Training, is not a body corporate and does not
have a separate legal identity.
The Council may not:
interfere with the management by the school's Principal of the 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.
The Council consists of student, staff, parent and community representatives. The Principal and the Parent and Citizens Association President are automatic members of the Council.
