School Council

Bradshaw School Council is the governance body that decides the school’s strategic direction and oversees the school’s operations. The council is made up of a team of elected parent representatives and staff members whose purpose is to serve and promote the interests of the students.

Our 2018 Bradshaw School Annual Performance Report was presented at the 2019 Annual General Meeting. 

Representatives are elected at the Annual General Meeting in February each year. Meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of every month of the school term. Members typically serve a two year term.

Council also operates sub-committees with a variety of focus areas. Parents do not need to be a member of school council to serve on a sub-committee.


The School Council undertakes a number of fundraising activities in conjunction with classes. Bunnings BBQ's, Lawn Sales, Popper recycling, Cake Stalls, Raffles and Subway lunch orders are some of the ways the Bradshaw community supports school fundraising. 

Subway lunches are available on a Thursday only. The correct money, together with the order form must be placed in a plastic bag/envelope and be at the front office by 8.45am on Thursday morning. Subway collect the orders and return the lunches. Bradshaw school has no role in this transaction.
