  • develop, review and update the policies of the school
  • regulate and facilitate the after-hours school care
  • exercise general oversight of the buildings and grounds ensuring they are kept in good order and condition
  • ensure all money coming into the hands of the council is properly expended
  • ensure they take account of the views expressed by the school community for the purpose of making decisions in the best interests of the school and our students
  • ensure the annual report and school’s strategic plan is published and available to the school community
  • stimulate interest in the school in the wider community
  • support the work of the Finance sub-committee as well as our Parents & Friends Association

A word from the President:

Anakie primary school is surrounded by the beautiful Brisbane Ranges. This serenity flows through the playground that is balanced with natural play and modern equipment that ignites play and curiosity to all the children at APS.
This is just one of the draw cards to our small country school.
Anakie primary is a nurturing, caring, fun and like-minded school and community.
The three composite classes are small in size which allows for more individual learning time with teachers and students.
Well being plays an integral part of the curriculum , ensuring that each child feels safe, happy, supported and ready to learn each day.
My family have been lucky enough to be apart of Anakie PS since 2017. We have seen many changes over these years and I can honestly say, it just keeps getting better.
Over the years I have been part of the PFA and some wonderful fund-raising events, with the support of our school families, Anakie community and the wider Geelong area, these are always very successful.
Last year was my first year on school council, and this year I’m honoured to represent Anakie as the school council president.
If you have ever considered enrolling your child(ren) into a small but wonderful school, don’t hesitate to call our office and book a tour.
Jessica Capon, School Council President.
