WALKY NEEDS YOU!
JOIN A WALKERVILLE PRIMARY COMMITTEE TO MEET NEW PEOPLE, BE INVOLVED IN THE ONGOING SUCCESS OF THE SCHOOL, AND CONTRIBUTE YOUR THOUGHTS AND IDEAS.
Walkerville Primary School’s sub-committees of Governing Council are a vital part of our community. Each committee is made up of parent volunteers and a leadership representative, who work collaboratively to develop recommendations, strategies and actions to positively contribute to the life and culture of the school.
You don’t need any experience to join a committee – simply a passion to get involved and an interest in contributing to a particular area.
Meetings are generally held twice a term out of school hours, with most meetings around 1 hour in length.
