Our School Community

We are home to one private, one special, 23 primary and five secondary schools. With our student population one of the highest per capita in the metropolitan area, we are keen to build stronger working relationships with our schools.

Council supports a wide range of activities that benefit young people within the education system such as Safety House, Constable Care and the Walking School Bus.


Mayor and Councillors are always happy to attend special school functions and look forward to acknowledging students who have achieved both academically and socially.


With your help and interest, this section will become a major focus for what is happening around our schools.
