The school has a range of committees and teams responsible for various aspects of school improvement and operations. It is desirable that committees have representatives from the various areas of the school, i.e. K-2, 3-6, lower secondary, senior secondary, AIEO, etc. While it is recognised that participative decision making is an integral part of any school it is important to note that the decision making process is participative and not democratic.

School Improvement Teams (SIT) – all staff are required to join a SIT. Meetings are held after school up to five times per term in lieu of “staff meetings”. Each SIT has a chairperson. The following SIT groups have been formed following the review of FVDHS by the ERG. 14;

  • Attendance;
  • School Community Partnerships;
  • English;
  • Information and Communications Technology (ICT); and
  • Maths.
School Council

Chaired by the principal. Meetings are held at least once per term and membership is open to community members via nomination. Please see the principal for more information. Finance – chaired by the principal with other members elected into vacant positions. Meetings occur minimum once per term. The purpose of this committee is to oversee the schools budget and finances. Please see the manager of corporate services or the principal for more information.

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)

Our purpose as a PBS School is to create a safe and supportive learning environment through the implementation of whole school Positive Behaviour Support (PBS). In this process we value the contributions from staff, students and community to inform our decisions. Our PBS leadership committee consists of two teams; Tier 1 and Tier 2. Membership of these teams Is voluntary and is open to all staff across the school. Meetings occur 3 times per term and are chaired by the PBS coordinator. If you’d like to be a part of the PBS leadership team, please contact the PBS coordinator. Staff Wellbeing – the aim of the Wellbeing Committee is to assist staff in making personal connections with colleagues. This may be through social events, shared meals and other activities designed to bring staff together. The Wellbeing Committee also includes a social club funded by staff to provide mementos for important life occasions for individual staff members. Please see a member of the committee if you would like to join. Meeting invitations are sent by email.

Workload Advisory

The workload advisory committee (WAC) meets with the principal at the beginning of the school year. Its purpose is to provide a forum to discuss and where possible resolve workload related issues. It provides advice to the principal on how to use school resources to resolve workload issues. It is recognised that the principal has the ultimate responsibility and authority in regard to allocation of school resources. The committee is made up of equal numbers between staff and school administrators.

Generally, it is the union representative and the principal. An agenda is jointly prepared by the Union Branch prior to the WAC meeting and the minutes made available for everyone on the shared drive.

National Quality Standard for Early Childhood (NQS)

Membership of the NQS committee is open to all staff, including secondary school and support staff. While this committee focuses on the NQS in relation to early childhood though, improvement strategies are usually implemented across the whole of primary school. The committee is chaired by the early childhood coordinator and meetings are held two to three times per term depending on need. Please let the ECE coordinator know if you’d like to join this committee. Meeting invitations are sent via email.


Education Assistants (EAs) are employed to assist in the classroom or with specific students (special needs EAs) and these people help the teachers with student work and enable better teacher/student ratio so your child is helped by many people to learn.


All staff are familiar with the FVDHS emergency procedures and there is a routine checking of fire and emergency warning signal. Staff and students take this very seriously and are made aware of what needs to happen if there are any issues at the school.
