School council

Roles

As an Independent Public School, Holland Park State High School is guided by a school council. This body operates under relevant legislation to work together with the school as well as the Parent and Citizens Association. It plays strategic roles, including: approval of plans and policies, monitoring performance and budgets; and providing long-term advice to the school administration. Through these roles, the council is primarily interested in promoting strong learning outcomes for the school’s students.
