Parent Representative Needed for Teacher Merit Selection - ASAP

Are you interested in helping select a new teacher at our school? Contact us at If you could let us know by this Wednesday as we need to appoint a parent representative by then so as not to delay hiring process.

Merit selection is one way in which school staff can be appointed to positions within a school and involves a panel being formed which includes a parent representative.

The parents representative’s role is to represent the interests of the students, parents and the school community in the selection of school staff.

Tasks and time commitment involved

  • Ad writing – usually a couple of hours (during school hours)

  • Time for reading the applications prior to shortlisting (NOTE: The time this will take is dependent on the number of applications received)

  • Shortlisting – a full day (during school hours)

  • Interviews – a full day (during school hours)

Online training is provided for new panel members and you don't need to be a P&C member, just a parent/carer who wants to be part of an important process in the school staff section. Department of Education and P&C Federation guide

Please contact us at if you are interested.
