School Council

The school council represents the school community in the process of school planning and policy development. They participate in establishment and review of school priorities including general policy direction, financial arrangements and approval of contributions and charges, and the evaluation of school performance. The council provides advise to the school to foster positive relationships between the school and the community.

Belmay’s school council is comprised of staff members, parents and community members. Our current school council is made up of the following members:

  • Neil Clarke (Chair)
  • Cassie Rowe MLA (Community Representative)
  • David Gerstorfer
  • Hannah Klauz
  • Sarah Durham (School Principal)
  • Veronica O’Neil
  • Jacqui Hamling (P&C Representative)
  • Jenna Haerewa
  • Jilaga Murray
  • Kylie Watson (P&C rep)
  • Terry Harney


Meetings occur 8 times per year and run for approximately one hour. The next school council meeting is scheduled for 23rd March 2021 at 6pm.

If you are interested in being more involved in the school and being a part of the decision-making process then we would love to see you at one of our meetings. Interested parents are encouraged to contact the school for further information.

Looking forward to a great 2021.
