School Council

The Greenhills School Council is the governing body of the school and includes parents, teachers, community members and school administrators. The School Council holds regular meetings to discuss educational programs and make decisions on school finances, grounds and policies.

Nominations for vacant council positions are called for in the beginning of each school year. Councillors typically serve a two-year term.
