Tennant Creek High School Council

Tennant Creek High School Council holds meetings each month, generally on the first Wednesday of every month, at 6pm. The meetings can be held at the school or at other suitable venues in the community. The meetings are open to the whole school community. The Council is a body corporate with an approved constitution whose members are made up of parents, teachers and student representatives. Participation is encouraged from the wider community; the council seeks to have family representation that mirrors the demographic of the school (85% Indigenous).
