School Council and Parent Involvement
Parent involvement and participation in a variety of school activities, is a significant feature of our school that is actively encouraged and greatly valued.
The Omeo Primary School Council has a constitution that allows for 4 parent representatives, 2 community members and 2 DET members. Meetings of the School Council are normally 2nd Wednesday of the month at 5.30. The School Council is responsible for many areas of school operation. Elections are held each March for approximately 1/2 of these positions.

Parents are involved in supporting classroom programs, the school’s committee structures, curriculum programs, the library and the development of facilities and resources.
